Masallah pertaining to inheritance

Question ID: 23892

I have 2 questions on Inheritance.
I have 1 brother and 2 sisters & a Mother
My deceased father got sick about 6 years ago, He owns a business. before he got sick we were all in the business with him and built the business up besides my brother who was occasionally there. I invested money in the business and my father before he passed away said that my investment should be paid. After my father got sick, my brother took over the business, but the business to date is still on my fathers name. I got married and moved out of the house and business for about 5 years now. My father sadly passed away recently, however the problem now arises. My brother says that the business was given to him by my father, however my father never called me in to discuss this, even though I was with my family all the time.
Once my brother & sisters suggested to my father that the business be put in my brothers name, but this was never done (My father did not accept this when it was brought up)
The second problem arises now that after my father is deceased, my brother and family (sisters) says that my father gave the shop to my brother.
My question is that there is no written proof that the business is my brothers, so am I still entitled to a share bearing in mind that his proof that the business was given to him is my two sisters and I was not present when this was discussed
My second Question: My father also has a house and a Car. How should this be split between the family. Should the house and car be sold and everyone be given their share?

1st Estate has to be divided from father as principle factor.
House and car must be sold then put into pool for distribution.

There the inheritance can be divided.

2 Sons;2 Daughters;Wife
Sons get 7/24 each

Daughters get 7/48 each

Wife gets 1/8
