What am I supposed to do with this problem when it says to "Identify" the left and right side of the equation?

The problem is 8+3x=5x-9. It says to identify the left and the right side. What does it mean by "identify"? Does it want me to find the answer (I'm pretty sure the answer is 8.5)?

Actually, my teacher said you just had to identify which was on the left and which was on the right..... It sounds like a joke.
