Walking at his usual speed a man can cover a distance of 96km in a certain time. But he actually walks at an increased speed and every hous covers a distance which is 1 km more than he would have covered in 1.25 hours walking at his usual speed. Thus, he reaches the destination 2 hours sooner. What is the ratio of his usual time to new time to cover the distance.
1) 7:5
2) 9:7
