I am sorry I am not directed with the education of math.
But granted, let me ask the above question.
In my language (actually Japanese), the words corresponding with the factor and divisor, seem to have come from English. (Not confirmed.)
Now when teaching (potentially for now to me now) them to kids.
I am sorry to say my question is just as it is at the title.
Does factor simply mean the multiplication of any functions, or numbers, whereas, the divisor means literally and only "divide" any numbers, etc?
I am afraid I am a little confused about the relationship between these two terms.
Let me kindly take number 24. The number 24 can be expressed by 24=2*2*2*3 if it is expressed by the divisor(s). Now when considering the same 24, when expressed by the factor, 24=4*6 or either 2*12.
Am I correct about understanding the meaning and the difference of these 2 terms??
Kindly let me thank you in advance.
