the factor by that the catalyst speeds up the reaction

The activation energy of an uncatalyzed reaction is Ea^1 = 92 kJ/mol, with a catalyst present it decreases to Ea^2 = 70 kJ/mol. Compute the factor by that the catalyst speeds up the reaction at 306 K:
(If the catalyzed reaction were two times faster, the factor would be 2.)
