(16 ÷ 4) × 3 = 12 shows that the full set was 16.

To get The answer do the math 12 divided by three is 4 so then multiply 4*4=16 so 16 is your answer

If we are looking at this strictly mathematically then there are 30 in the set. if 12 is 2 fifths. divide it by 2 give you 6. Which is 1 fifth. Multiply that by 5. gives you the full set 5 * 6 = 30

3/8=12 Divided By 3 1/8=4 Times By 8 8/8=32 Whole Set is 32

If you're making an outline of a square, then 16 counters. You have the 4 corner counters, each shared by 2 sides and then in between the corner counters there are 3 counters on each of the 4 sides (4*3 = 12). If you're filling the inside of the square with counters, then you have 5 rows of 5 = 25 counters.
