Twelve. Remember that the dot always adds one half of the original note to the total - so a dotted half note is three beats in length. (Cut a half note in half and you get a quarter, so a dotted half note is two beats for the half note and one beat for the quarter you added to it) So now you can take those three beats (Three quarter notes) and cut them in half, which is six eighth notes, and then cut that in half and get twelve sixteenth notes. Phew. I hope that made sense.
