you would need 12...

You would need 20 pavers 20 times which is 20x20=400.

A 12 x 12 inch brick is 1 square foot. A 20 x 20 (foot) patio is 400 square feet, so you would need 400 bricks.. this assumes you are butting the bricks fairly tight, not leaving large seperations between them, etc...

Assuming the 12x12 bricks are 12 feet on each side, those are 144 square feet. The patio itself is 76 square feet. Unless you made a typo, not even one of those bricks is going to fit on the patio; you end up with about 0.5278 bricks.

The answer will depend on the shape of the patio. If it curved then some bricks will need trimming and that will result in wastage and so a larger number of bricks will be required. Also, if the patio leaves a small fractional amount after a whole number of bricks, you will need a lot more bricks. As an extreme example, if the patio is 8 cm*625 metres then you will need 3125 bricks. However, if the shape is convenient, you will require 2500 bricks.
