Instead of giving you a confusing definition first, I will just you an example:

1×24=24

2×12=24

3×8= 24

4×6=24

The factors of 24 are 1,2,3,4,6,8,12,24

So you can deduce that factors of a number are the numbers which can be multiplied to get the said number.

You can also say that factors of a number can be divided by the said number without living a remainder
