A divisor is the number being divided by in a division problem. For example, 6/3=2. 3 is the divisor in that example. A factor is the part of a multiplication problem that is being multiplied. A multiplication problem can have two or more factors. For example, 3 times 2 equals 6. 3 and 2 are the factors in that example.
