<D is complentary to <E and <D is supplementary to <G
If the measure of <E is 78
find the measure of <D and <G

D+E=90 ... (1)
D+G=180 ... (2)
Solve for D from (1), and hence G from (2).

Let's do a check:
D+E=90 => 12+78=90 OK
D+G=180 => 12+118=130 ≠ 180 ??
Let's solve for G from (2):
12-12+G = 180-12
Post if it's still not clear.
