See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, solve this as a equality for two values of

**For #x = 0#:**

**For #x = 10#:**

We can then plot the two points on the gird.

Then, draw a solid line through the two points. We will use a solid line because the inequality is **"greater than or equal to"**. If the inequality was just **"greater than"** we would use a dashed line.

Finally, because this is a greater than or greater than or equal to inequality we shade the area above the line.
