Let x be the number of hits Sanchez had so that Washington had x+12 hits. Since they got a total of 366 hits, we can write:
$\left(x+12\right)+x=366$
Solve for x:
$2x+12=366$
Subtract 12 from both sides:
$2x=354$
Divide both sides by 2:
$x=177$
Using this value of x, Washington had 189 hits and Sanchez had 177 hits.
