Aliquot Divisor

A number which Divides another exactly. For instance, 1, 2, 3, and 6 are aliquot divisors of 6. A number which is not an aliquot divisor is said to be an Aliquant Divisor. The term ``aliquot'' is frequently used to specifically mean a Proper Divisor, i.e., a Divisor of a number other than the number itself.
