The father is 9 times faster than Arunima.
They are 15 minutes earlier home. As this includes a round trip, the dad picks Arunima 7.5 minutes earlier up than normal.
Arunima has by then been walking for 1 hour + 7.5 minutes = 67.5 minutes.
So what the dad does in 7.5 minutes, Arunima did in 67.5 minutes => 67.5 / 7.5 = 9
