Often times I'll see a question pop up in New Questions similar to
Solve x^12 + ... <random math> + 5 = 0 for x.
A poor question that falls under Lacking Context, in addition to poor formatting. In these cases is it even worth it to edit the question? Often it's a trivial edit such as adding $'s around the mathjax or changing "slove" to "solve". However, the post seems doomed to closure regardless.
I've read this answer which mentions editing can make the post more searchable and/or help educate a new user about the site. I don't think this applies here, because, while the formatting is a problem, it's not the main problem with the post. The main problem is the lack of context/effort shown.
I've also read this question, but it's about editing questions on hold, where I'm talking about new questions with relatively low activity.
Note: This is the particular question, which led me to ask this. I ended up editing it anyways, by simply adding $'s around the math. I'd also like to note that often if I don't make the trivial edit, someone else will.
