Probably 30

Within that 10 square has starters and ridge cap plus some waste been included?

For instance using measurements of 10ft by 50ft x 2 for 2 straight sides would be the 30 bundles excluding ridge and starters and some waste.

A 10 square roof requires 10 square of shingles. A square of shingles is 3 bundles and covers roughly 10ft by 10ft (100 square ft). You're looking at around 30 bundles. You will need bundles for caps if the roof in question has a peak or wraps around a side. In my area, code also requires installation of a ridge vent when repairing/replacing roofing.

Where do you live that code requires that? One square of shingles covers roughly 98.4 sq feet. You will want to order 33 bundles to account for waste. One bundle of starter shingles and one bundle of proper ridge cap should do the trick.

Central PA. Our building code requires ridge vent run the entire spawn of the ridge stopping 1 1/2" from end of ridge on both sides. This sucks when working on the houses in this area because most are 100+ years old and need a lot more than just shingles replaced.
