A number that's less than the sum of the most of its divisors except itself.

adjective:

several, the sum whose aliquot parts surpasses the amount it self. Thus, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, the aliquot parts of 12, make the number 16. This is certainly against a deficient number, as 14, whoever aliquot parts are 1, 2, 7, the sum of which is 10; and to a perfect number, which is add up to the sum its aliquot components, as 6, whoever aliquot components tend to be 1, 2., 3.
