30ab = c

c hours * a cust/hr * $30/b cust = 30ac/b $

check:

If 10 customers spend $300 in 5 hours, that's $60/hr, so in 3 hours that would be $180.

30ac/b = 30*10*3/5 = 180

I also came to that answer, but it isn't one of the choices. The choices are:

(A) 30c/ab

(B) bc/30a

(C) 30bc/a

(D) 30ac/b

(E) 30b/ac

Steve's answer is right and is one of your choices.

Sorry -- my answer is wrong.
