How many 10 megapixel pictures can you get with 32 mb ? My mom bought my a camera with 32 mb already on it, how many 10 megapixel pictures is that?

It's next to impossible to say for sure, as the file size only has a vague relation with the number of pixels when using the JPEG format.

The capture quality setting on the camera has a major effect on the recorded file's sizes, and for a given quality the file size varies from picture to picture depending on the photographed subject.

The best is to snap a few pictures, say 10 of various subjects, then take the average file size. If you get, say, an average of 3MB per file then a 32GB memory card will hold approximately 1,000 images.
