As far as i know, factors and divisors are synonyms in GMAT.

OK, it´s good to know. That makes sense with some OA I have seen.

I have been using divisor all my life to refer to the "prime" factors, and factors to all the numbers by which you can divide a number. It´s time to change my mind for the GMAT.

Hi,

All of the following are the SAME question:

Is x a multiple of y? Is y a factor of x? Is y a divisor of x? Is x a dividend of y? Is x divisible by y? Does the quotient x/y yield an integer value?

"divisor" and "factor" are synonymous in math. _________________
