Take out 2020^2019

$$\frac{2020^{2019}(2020^2-1)}{2020^{2019}(2020^1-1)}$$

Erase the 2020^2019

$$\frac{2020^2-1}{2020^1-1}$$

Which is 2021

Why, hello there flec :omighty:

all must bow down!!!

to perfect scorer on IMO

Anyways, we can recognize that $$2020^{2020}-2020^{2019}=2020^{2019} \cdot 2020-2020^{2019}=2020^{2019} \cdot 2019$$ and then simplify the top similarly. After canceling some terms, we will be left with the answer.
