Here is the problem with the solution:

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't understand why the filter is low pass. How I solve this usually is I plug in ω=0 and ω=∞. When I plug in 0 I get the gain of a non inverting op amp. When I plug in ∞ I get that the transfer function (gain) is equal to 1. Since it is equal to 1 doesn't that mean it lets high frequencies pass? I remember in passive filters when you get 1 for ω=∞ it means it is a high pass filter. HOWEVER, the tricky thing about active filters is that when ω=0, the gain is not 0, instead it is 1+R_{1}/R_{2}which I think is why I am confused.
