A number that divides the integer exactly (no remainder).

In other words the division works perfectly with **no fractions or remainders involved**.

Examples:

• 3 is a divisor of 12, because 12 ÷ 3 = 4 exactly

• 4 is a divisor of 12, because 12 ÷ 4 = 3 exactly

• 5 is **not** a divisor of 12, because 12 ÷ 5 = 2 with a remainder of 2

Note: a divisor is also a **factor** of the original integer.
