In the first rak'ah: after the Takbiratul-Ihram, the recitation of surah al-Hamd and the other surah, there are five takbirs with a final takbir added before going into ruku'. 

In the second rak'ah: after the recitation of surah al-Hamd and the other surah, there are four takbirs with a final takbir added before going into ruku'.

Therefore in total there are twelve takbirs: seven in the first rak'ah and five in the second rak'ah.

With prayers for your success.
