As far as I know, both factor and divisor mean the same. When we say 10 is a factor (or divisor) of 100, we mean that 10 divides 100 evenly (with remainder = 0)

For the official (GMAT that is) definition I would go to the OG Math review section but dictionary.com seems to indicate that these two terms are synonymous.

They are the same (even according to OG i think)
