Section Number and Name: Sizing Recommendations

Describe the issue: 

The section text is
"In a highly-available OpenShift Enterprise cluster with external etcd, a master host should have 1 CPU core and 2.5 GB of memory, on top of the defaults in the table above, for each 1000 pods. Therefore, the recommended size of master host in an OpenShift Enterprise cluster of 2000 pods would be 20 CPU cores and 50 GB of RAM, as well as the minimum requirements for a master host of 2 CPU cores and 8 GB of RAM."

The sizing formula described in the first sentence (1 CPU/2.5G RAM for each 1000 pods) does not match the second sentence (20 CPU/50G RAM for 2000 pods), by a factor of 10.

Suggestions for improvement: 

Please verify and update the correct sizing formula.

Is it 1 CPU/2.5G RAM for each 1000 pods, 
1 CPU/2.5G RAM for each 100 pods?

Additional information:

@Jeremy- Is it 1 CPU/2.5G RAM for each 1000 pods, or 1 CPU/2.5G RAM for each 100 pods? Can you please help verify, or point me to someone who can? Thanks!
