**Answer: **16:1

**Step by Step Explanation: **- Let's assume Brian had covered distance x in time t. We know that the speed is equal to . Therefore according to the given question, the speed V
_{1} will be:

, or . - The speed V
_{2} will be equal to:

, or . - The ratio V
_{1} : V_{2} will be:

, or **16:1**.
