Why are edits on some posts closed?For instance-Factor Theorem and Long Division

Edit tab cannot be clicked here.Why is it blocked? I have seen this in many other questions.

    $\begingroup$ FYI, if you let your mouse hover over the edit link, there's a tooltip explaining what's going on. (It happens sufficiently often on the internet that it's a useful habit to take.) $\endgroup$ – Najib Idrissi Nov 19 '15 at 17:05

When a post has a pending edit suggestion, it cannot be edited until that suggestion was approved or rejected. If you have more than 2k rep, you will be shown a link to review the pending suggestion, below 2k, you just can't edit the post.

    $\begingroup$ @tatan Hovering over grayed out "edit" link tells you why: "suggested edits are disabled on meta sites", i.e., here. Meta is a different site with different rules; only users with 2000+ reputation can edit here. $\endgroup$ – user147263 Nov 19 '15 at 17:30
