$14.4$

#### Explanation:

10% of something is $\frac{1}{10}$th of that something.

Then 10% of $120$ is $12$

1% of something is $\frac{1}{100}$th of that something or $\frac{1}{10}$th of $\frac{1}{10}$th.

So, 1% of $120$ is $\frac{1}{10}$th of $12$ which is $1.2$

Then 2% of $120$ is $2.4$

Then 12%# of $120$ is $12 + 2.4 = 14.4$
