Arrow How many ATPs?

This may sound dumb, i just want to know cause i dont see it anywhere in FA, just know that 2 atps are generated in glycolysis, and 10 per acetylcoa in krebs meaning so far: 22 ATPS, but i know im missing more, could someone help me please?

now if you look in FA errarta 2013 or FA 2014
1 NADH= 2.5 ATP, 1 FADH2=1.5 ATP

so let`s count:

Glucose ---> 2 pyruvate: getting 2 ATPs and 2 NADH (these 2 NADH=5 ATP (2*2.5=5)) so total = 7 ATP

2 pyruvate ---> 2 acetyl CoA which produce 2 NADH = 5 ATP

acetyl CoA via Kreab`s cycle will make 10 ATP (3 NADH +1 FADH + 1 GTP = 2.5*3 + 1.5 + 1)
but we have 2 acetyl CoA so 10*2=20

total= 7+5+20 = 32
as it says in FA
