Answer

Identity

Work Step by Step

We first use the distributive property on both sides to get that $3h-12=-12+3h$. We then simplify by subtracting 3h on both sides to get that $-12=-12$. This leaves us with the same thing on both sides of the equation, so this is an identity. An identity is an equation that is true for every possible value.
