Can you elaborate more on what you're looking for?

Do you want to solve it? Or typeset it in Latex?

I want to solve it. I can do it on my calculator but I want to learn how to do it on paper

Easy enough to do in your head, so not much effort necessary to do on paper.
Half of 26, that much is 13;
13 multiply by 10, append one zero digit, making 130.

A connection or chain of just factors to make a product: multiply from left to right; also you can arrange the factors in the expression in any order.

This is not an equation. A clue that you're dealing with an equation is the = symbol. Furthermore, you don't "solve" an expression - you can calculate it by carrying out the operations involved in the expression.
