Answer

1.3x10^-2 M Mg2+ and 1.3x10^-2 M (SO4)2-

Work Step by Step

MgSO4 will break up into Mg2+ and (SO4)2-. For each mole of MgSO4, there will be one mole of Mg2+ and one mole of (SO4)2-. Therefore, if we have 1.3x10^-2 M or 1.3x10^-2 mol/L MgSO4 then you will have 1.3x10^-2 M Mg2+ and 1.3x10^-2 M (SO4)2-.
