Graph the line
   5x + 6y ≤ 30
This is easily done by rearranging to intercept form so you can easily see the intercepts.    x/6 + y/5 ≤ 1
Plot the intercepts (6, 0) and (0, 5), and draw a line through them.

Now, recognize that for values of x or y below this line, the inequality is satisfied. Shade the area below the line and mark that as identifying the solution space.

Here is a plot.
