How to shrink the fedora partition


Basically I want to install ubuntu alongside fedora, I have 120GB of free space and I want to set aside 50gb for ubuntu, trouble is when I run the ubuntu installer my whole hard drive is partitioned into 4 sda1, sda2, sda3, sda4. I want to shrink the sda3 volume containing fedora to allow me to install ubuntu.

Could someone explain to me in linux noob language how to do this?
