To understand divisor first we need to understand about division. Division is defined as the division of two numbers. It is represented by this symbol ‘/’. Division always gives result if the denominator is not equal to zero. If the denominator is equal to zero then division always give undefined value.
Now we will define divisor. Divisor are the defined as the numbers by which dividend can be divided. For example: - The positive divisors of 21 are 1, 3, 7, and 21.  The method of finding divisor is to factorize the dividend till the left point is 1. It can be done by the factorization method but by using long combinations. Actually factorization gives idea about the fare idea about divisors or we can say it makes the process easy.

It can be more clarified by the examples which are shown below:- 

Example 1: Find the divisors of 50.

Solution: In this problem we have to find the divisors of 50. So we will use factorization method, which is shown below
 
 So the divisor of 50 is: - 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 50. 

Example 2: Find the divisors of 100.

Solution: In this problem we have to find the divisors of 100. So we will use factorization method, which is shown below
 

 So the divisor of 50 is: - 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100.
