Definition of Multiples of 120
Multiples of 120 are all the numbers that when divided by 120 equal an integer. Each of the multiples of 120 are called a multiple. A multiple of 120 is created by multiplying 120 by an integer.
Therefore, to create a list of multiples of 120, you start with 1 multiplied by 120, then 2 multiplied by 120, then 3 multiplied by 120, and so on for as long as you want. Thus, the list of the first five multiples of 120 is 120, 240, 360, 480, and 600. To see a larger list of multiples of 120, see the printable image of Multiples of 120 further down on this page. We also have a category where you can choose any nth multiple of 120.

Multiples of 120 vs Factors of 120
120 is a multiple of 120 and a factor of 120, but that is where the similarities end. All postive multiples of 120 are 120 or greater than 120. All positive factors of 120 are 120 or less than 120.
Below is the beginning list of multiples of 120 and the factors of 120 so you can compare:
Multiples of 120: 120, 240, 360, 480, 600, etc.
Factors of 120: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 24, 30, 40, 60, 120
As you can see, the multiples of 120 are all the numbers that you can divide by 120 to get a whole number. The factors of 120, on the other hand, are all the whole numbers that you can multiply by another whole number to get 120.
It's also interesting to note that if a number (x) is a factor of 120, then 120 will also be a multiple of that number (x).
Multiples of 120 vs Divisors of 120
The divisors of 120 are all the integers that 120 can be divided by evenly. Below is a list of the divisors of 120.
