The answer is "when the remainder is `0`".

The divisors that divide, with remainder `0`, are called factors of the dividend.

eg: Factors of `6` are `1`, `2`, `3`, and `6`. Because the remainder is `0` for `6-:1`, `6-:2`, `6-:3` and `6-:6`

eg: Factors of `20` are `1`, `2`, `4`, `5`, `10`, and `20`

eg: Factors of `13` are `1` and `13`
