on the base area I gather your meant square units, that is $$\bf 3\sqrt{3}\ in^2$$

anyhow, volume = length x height x width or for this prism will be base area x height $$\bf volume = 12\sqrt{3}\qquad \qquad \textrm{base area} = 3\sqrt{3}\ in^2\\ volume = \textit{base area} \times height\\ 12\sqrt{3} = 3\sqrt{3} \times height$$ solve for "height"
