Bigger numbers in the example?

Thanks for the article, I found it helpful.
Just one suggestion: if I followed it correctly, then in the example we expect 0.95 guilty people to fail the test, which we round to 1 because we need whole numbers. Could we have the example using 10000 athletes to avoid fractional people?
