Definition of Multiples of 60
Multiples of 60 are all the numbers that when divided by 60 equal an integer. Each of the multiples of 60 are called a multiple. A multiple of 60 is created by multiplying 60 by an integer.
Therefore, to create a list of multiples of 60, you start with 1 multiplied by 60, then 2 multiplied by 60, then 3 multiplied by 60, and so on for as long as you want. Thus, the list of the first five multiples of 60 is 60, 120, 180, 240, and 300. To see a larger list of multiples of 60, see the printable image of Multiples of 60 further down on this page. We also have a category where you can choose any nth multiple of 60.
