 Description  
 Linear Pair:  Two adjacent angles that form a straight line.

Remember that, by definition, segment AC is part of a straight line. Angles ABG and CBG are adjacent angles (since they share side BG). The other side of each angle, sides AB and BC, form the line segment AC. Therefore, we can call angles ABG and CBG a linear pair.
