Dear Student,
Assume there are in total x bricks.
So, according to questoins , A will use x/15 bricks per hour and B will use x/20 bricks per hour.
Now we they work together, number of bricks per hour used by them will be (x/15+x/20 – 180) and these we can say that for 12 hours of work,
(x/15+x/20 – 180) * 12 = x.
Use these equation to find x.

Thanks.
