Thank you for Reply,
I have executed following command according to your reply,

(parted) resize 5 176136723 381575941

But I am getting following error:

Error: Partition /dev/sda5 is being used. You must unmount it before you modify
it with Parted.

again i have given command as
root@Crayom:/home/crayom# sudo umount /dev/sda5
then i got
umount: /: device is busy.

please help
