Math Review:
The multiplication of two integers yields a third integer. The first two integers are called factors, and the third integer is called the product. The product is said to be a multiple of both factors, and it is also divisible by both factors.
Whenever an integer
N is divisible by an integer x, we say that x is a divisor
of N.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
According to these definitions, divisors and factors of an integer N are the same set of numbers.
