Why should k increase more than the k of the reverse reaction?

If the reaction is endothermic then increasing the temperature will favor the forward reaction; thus, k(1) will increase more than k'(1). (I do not have the textbook with me, so I might have answered the wrong question)

The higher the activation energy, the stronger the temperature dependance of the rate constant. In this reaction, the forward reaction has a higher activation than the reverse reaction, which is why k of the forward reaction will increase more than k of the reverse reaction.
