so I have worked out that hydrogen has 30,000,000 moles and nitrogen has 6,000,000 moles but how do I now show that nitrogen is the limiting reactant?

This video explains it rather well.
You need to look at the reaction you have and see, via the stoichiometry and by comparing the moles (which you have already calculated), which limits the reaction.
