How would I make this SQL query
I'm new to SQL and have written a few SQL statements, but this one has me stumped. I want to take the sum of all rows that have either a status of 11 of 12 and divide that by the total number of rows with a status of 13. I can't use a WHERE status = '11' or '12' in the SELECT part so I don't even know where to start.

Will this get you started?

SELECT * FROM table WHERE status=11 OR status=12;

No, I don't see where I can go from that. This syntax here is wrong, but this is what i'd like to be able to do written in pseudo code.

SELECT COUNT(WHERE status = '11' OR '12') / COUNT(WHERE status = '13');

Try something like this:

SELECT @a:=COUNT(status) WHERE status=11 OR status=12
UNION SELECT @b:=COUNT(status) WHERE status=13

Use it as a subquery and retrieve only the last line.
