@JohnLawler, regardless of a non-unique result, 3x4, 6x2, 3x2x2, are called factors. So in my words, a factor is a generalized term for a number that is capable of dividing a product. Moreover, prime numbers also have exactly two factors eg 17 has 1x17. Since multiplicand has a commonly used synonym, I thought perhaps addend too has a commonly used one so that it can be used in a sentence like: The score increased by a ______ of two. (I very well remember that we can say "The score increased by two." but I am curious to fill that blank.)

@JohnLawler, the splitting i refer to is nothing but factorization in the case of multiplication. In case of addition and subtraction, I don't know what to call.
