Ok. so you take the area of the quadrilateral. Let's say it was 16(4x4). You divide 16 by 5 and you should get 16 or 3 1
 
5 5
So you want to color 3 whole squares and 1/5 of one. Divide one square into fifths.
The onehalf should be easy. Just shade in half of your shape.
I don't know if I did that right so you might want to check with someone else but see if it works.
