confused about this 1rm algorithm

Hey this 1rm calculator on exrx confuses the hell out of me, check these example numbers

127 x 3 = 134 max
then according to the box on the right, 127 is 95% 1rm

but according to the bottom box, you should hit 95% for 2 reps

Doesn't this seem contradictory? If I hit 127 for 3, either 127 is not 95% or the bottom box predicting 2 reps at 95% is wrong, they can't both be right.
