The Variable Dilemma

Each letter in the equations below stands for a different number (0 through 9). Look at each equation carefully. Think about the knowledge you have of how numbers work.

Find the values of each letter (A through J).

G + G + G = D
J + E = J
G^2 = D
B + G = D
F - B = C
A X C = A
I / H = A, H > A

Please keep track of your steps and explain your reasoning. Maybe there are some more obvious mathematical ideas that you want to write about. Good luck!
