$\frac{3}{20}$

#### Explanation:

On offer is $\frac{3}{4}$ pizza

Each person is given a slice that that is the same size as all the rest.
So the $\frac{3}{4}$ pizza is split into 5 equally sized parts.

Thus each of the 5 slices is $\frac{1}{5} \times \frac{3}{4} = \frac{1 \times 3}{5 \times 4} = \frac{3}{20} {\textcolor{w h i t e}{}}^{\text{ths}} \textcolor{w h i t e}{.}$ of a whole pizza
