Figure of Merit is a term used to describe the comparison of digital cameras with varying zoom and pixel counts and their ability to maximize the number of pixels on the subject.

This relates to the common question of "Is a 5 megapixel camera with 3x zoom better than a 2 megapixel camera with 10x zoom?"

What happens is that with a longer zoom you can sometimes place more pixels on the subject than a higher resolution camera but with less zoom.

Here's a great explanation and comparisons on Figure of Merit
