These two edits fixed an error that the author had in his answer, yet in both cases they were rejected by two of the three reviewers.

I understand that it is not always appropriate to edit an old post due to it being bumped to the front page, but this is a critical math error and not just a style change.

I'm entirely sure that the math is accurate. Am I going about the editing process wrong?

    $\begingroup$ The "suggested edit" queue is basically a game of chance. Sometimes you see garbage edits getting accepted in seconds, sometimes you see accurate edits rejected for no reason. $\endgroup$ – Najib Idrissi Sep 21 '16 at 8:27
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks @JohnMa. It's quite unfortunate that the validity of the reviews is so varied. $\endgroup$ – Micah Sep 21 '16 at 8:49
