When solving for this problem why is the answer book says to utilize the form ln(k'/k), but why is k' on the numerator when it is normally depicted as being place on the denominator, such as K=k/k' ?

k and k' in this case are referring to the rate constants at different temperatures. The k and k' which you are referring to have to deal with forward and reverse reactions. k and k' in this case can also be referred to as k1 and k2 in this instance.
