40 students attended the brilliant summer camp at Stanford University. "k" of the students at the camp are working on math problems and the others are working on non-math problems. One of the camp mentors noticed that whenever all the students were partitioned into 2 or more groups of equal size, they could never have the same number of math students in every group. How many different values could "k" have?
