Why did they use Ea,cat=(75/125) instead of Ea,cat=(125-75) to help find the factor by which the rate of the reaction changed?

The idea is that you want to calculate the ratio of the rate constant k. You can use two Arrhenius equations and take the ratio or the solution manual used the law of log which also works
