try this..

Rachel and Stephanie earn $5.15 an hour. Rachel works 13 hours each week and Stephanie works 20 hours per week. Stephanie does not get any paid vacation time. How long a vacation would Stephanie have to take to make the same amount of money as Rachel in one year?

I could be mistaken but I'm guessing that the question should state that Rachel works 15 hours per week, not 13, as 13 per week give us a decimal in our answer versus the number 15.

So yes the answer is solvable both ways, but 15 makes the problem much easier.
