I'm not certain what you mean by "integer/12 integer" but I suspect you mean , the "integers modulo 12". The "units of a ring" are those members of ring that have a multiplicative inverse. It should be easy to see that if a number has a common factor with 12, then some multiple of it will be a multiple of 12, so congruent to 0 modulo 12, so cannot have a multiplicative inverse.
