In mathematics a divisor of an integer n, also called a factor of n.

For example,


  • For integers m and n, it is said that m divides n, m is a divisor of n, or n is a multiple of m, and this is written as
    m \mid n,
if there exists an integer k such that mk = n. Under this definition, the statement 0 \mid 0 holds.
  • As before, but with the additional constraint m \neq 0. Under this definition, the statement 0 \mid 0 does not hold.
