Using all four of the numbers below once, how can you arrange the numbers in such a way so that they equal to 24 using addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and/or parenthesis? There may be more than one answer.

2 5 6 12


For example:
If you had 1 5 5 9 you can arrange them as (5+1)x(9-5)=24. Simple?
