Typo in submitted solution

I submitted a solution to a problem, but realized after submitting it that there was a typo. I am not sure how to fix that at this point. Is there any possibility to correct it?

Howdy Alex,

Shoot an email with your edits to mathematics@brilliant.org. In the email please be sure to state your name and what problem you submitted a solution to. In general, I would not stress out too much about a minor typo. Worse things have happened.

The typo was writing the wrong fraction for a number, so its kinda a big deal. In the email can I just put the corrections, or should I resubmit the entire thing?

Yeah I suppose that's more than a spelling error. You could do either option. Resubmitting the entire thing in the email is probably the easiest for us. That way they can just copy and paste the new and replace the old.
