#### Explanation:

First, rewrite the expression as:

$\frac{13}{15} \times \frac{60}{1} \implies$

$\frac{13}{15} \times \frac{15 \times 4}{1}$

$\frac{13}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{15}}}} \times \frac{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{15}}} \times 4}{1} \implies$

$\frac{13}{1} \times \frac{4}{1} \implies$

$13 \times 4 \implies$

$52$
