    Please tell me what is wrong with my math

    I am trying to figure out how much bandwidth a 1megabit connection will give me a month. But I am told this is wrong.

    1 megabit/second = 60 megabits/minute
    60 megabits/minute = 360 megabits/hour
    360 megabits/hour = 8640 megabits/day
    8640 megabits/day = 259200 megabits/month

    259200 megabits/month = 32400 megabytes/month
    32400 megabytes/month = 32.4 gigabytes/month

    Whats wrong with this?

    60 megabits/minute = 360 megabits/hour

    Yeah, I find it odd that I can do fine as an engineering major, but chop off a zero somehow when multiplying 60*60.
