Defaulting a limit to display

Is there a way to make a default limit unless otherwise specified via a sql statement?  I am using JQuery and AJAX to change the limit to list on the page and I would like for 10 to be the default limit unless the user changes this.

if($_GET['act'] == 'getNum') {
            $number = $_GET['change'];
            $getUsers = sprintf("SELECT id, username, answer_point, howto_point
                  FROM login
                  LIMIT %d", $number);
            $showUsers = mysql_query($getUsers) or die("Users not showing because: " . mysql_error());
                  while($u = mysql_fetch_array($showUsers)) {
                        if(!empty($u['answer_point']) AND !empty($u['howto_point'])) {
                              $points = $u['answer_point'] + $u['howto_point'];
                                    echo "      <div class='performer'>
                                                            <div class='user'>{$u['username']}</div>
                                                            <div class='points'>$points</div>
