    The sum of the angles in a triangle is always 180 degrees. You're able to find the measure of the angle H by subtracting G and J from 180. 180-40-70= 70. This means the triangle is an isosceles triangle. Therefore, GH is smaller than side HJ. So < is correct.

    It's asking about the sides, not the angles. Check again.
