The divisors (or factors) of a positive integer are the integers that evenly divide it. For example, the divisors of 28 are 1, 2, 4, 7, 14 and 28. Of course 28 is also divisible by the negative of each of these, but by "divisors" we usually mean the positive divisors.
The proper divisors of the integer n are the positive divisors of n other than n itself. The proper divisors of 27 are 1, 3 and 9.
Prime numbers are those integers greater than one whose only divisors are one and themselves (so whose only proper positive divisor is one).
There is another use of the word divisor: when we divide an integer a by a non-zero integer b, to get a quotient and remainder (see the division algorithm), b is the divisor and a is the dividend.
