How to solve with K without an A value?

The problem gives Ea as 125 KJ/mol, how would you solve for k to see if the reaction will occur at room temperature if no A value is given?

In the organic textbook it says that a reaction will occur at room temperature if it's Ea is approximately lower than 80 kj/mol.

Therefore, if its' Ea is at 125 kj/mol, then it wont occur at room temp. You don't need to calculate anything.

When you write out the division problem, the A's should cancel out.
