both are infinities

You have to use the limit of infinities to understand this question. If you do not understand limits then gladly ask away.

the limit of 1/∞ = 0
the limit of ∞/1 = ∞
the limit of 3∞ = ∞
the limit of -5∞ = ∞

the limit of both 1∞ and 20∞ are the same, but!

lemme give you this example (image)
y = (x3-1)/(x-1)

if you look for the value of y if x is 1, is undefined because the value is 0/0

but if you take the limit of y as x approaches 1, the value is 3

meaning the limit of 1∞ is equal to the limit of 20∞, but 1∞ may or may not be the same as 20∞

I hope this answers your question anon, you can't simply multiply and compare infinities to each other without special functions. Unfortunately for this one the answer is syntax error.
