What is an aliquot factor?

It is a whole divisor. For instance 5 is an aliquot factor of 15, and 15 is an aliquot factor of 150.

I'm sorry, but I don't seem to understand it.

For example, how do you get the aliquot factor of 50?

2, 5, 10, 25 would be aliquot factors of 50. Any whole number divisor.

thank you
