"factoring" vs "factorizing"
I've noticed that "factoring" and "factorization" are often used interchangeably. However, is there any difference in semantics? I'm under the impression that "factoring" often refers to just finding a factor, while "factorizating" means finding all the factors.
Am I correct? Or is there no difference?

No Difference
Yes there is no difference between factoring and factorizing. Both have same meaning.
