$300 \cdot 5 = 1500$ "readings"

Numbers of "readings" = $n \cdot 60$

where $n$ ist the number of newspapers.

So $60 n = 1500$ and therefore $n = 25$

Please Note: I made the assumption that each student has his own copy of newspaper.

Since, There are 300 students reading 5 newspapers each, so Therefore there must be 1500 newspapers copies.

Since each Newspaper is read by 60 students$\implies$ Each newspaper has 60 copies.

So Total number of different Newspapers required = $\dfrac{1500}{60}=25$.
