#### Answer:

See the entire solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Multiply each side of the equation by $\textcolor{red}{8}$ to solve for $p$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$\textcolor{red}{8} \times \frac{p}{8} = \textcolor{red}{8} \times \frac{13}{2}$

$\cancel{\textcolor{red}{8}} \times \frac{p}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{8}}}} = \frac{104}{2}$

$p = 52$
