We should have at least 3 rows and at least 3 chairs in a row:

# OF ROWS --- # OF CHAIRS IN A ROW
3 --------------------------------- 12
4 ---------------------------------- 9
6 ---------------------------------- 6
9 ---------------------------------- 4
12 -------------------------------- 3

Total of 5 ways.

Hope it's clear.

P.S. P.S. Please read carefully and follow: rules-for-posting-please-read-this-before-posting-133935.html Pay attention to the rule #3 (the name of a topic MUST be the first 40 characters (~the first two sentences) of the question).
