    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.

    factors and divisors are same.

    They are numbers which can properly divide any number.
