#### Work Step by Step

We first turn the whole number into fraction form, giving us the following: $\frac{13}{2} \div \frac{1}{4}$ We never can divide by a fraction. Rather, we must multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction. Because the reciprocal of 1/4 is 4/1, we obtain: $\frac{13}{2}\times \frac{4}{1} = \frac{52}{2}=26$
