Each committee is to have an equal number of members and each member is to be on one committee. What size committees are possible?

factors of 435: 5 (87) so five folks one 27 committees. (or 87 folks [not allowed] one 5 committees).
factors of 435: 15 (29) would that work? 15 folks on 29 committees?
Any others?

M = Members.
C = Committees.
3M/C * 145C = 435 Members.
5M/C * 87C = 435.
15M/C * 29C = 435.
29M/C * 15C = 435.
a. 3,5,15,and 29M/C are possible.
b. 145,87,29, and 15C, respectively.
