You may use the quotient property of logarithmic function to transform the logartihm of fraction into a difference of two logarithms such that:

`log_w (13x/4) = log_w (13x) - log_w 4`

You need to use the product property of logarithmic function to transform the logartihm of product `13*x` into a sum of two logarithms such that:

`log_w (13x/4) = log_w 13 + log_w x - log_w 4`

**Hence, expanding the logarithm of fraction into a sum and a difference yields `log_w (13x/4) = log_w 13 + log_w x - log_w 4.` **
