    Mitosis is asexual reproduction (2 identical daughter cells are produced with the full number of chromosome) meiosis is sexual reproduction (4 genetically different daughter cells are produced with half the normal number of chromosomes) - hope this helps 😁

    What is the difference between meiosis and mitosis
    Mitosis: Forms genetically identical cells. (Diploid cells)

    Meiosis: Forms genetically different cells. (Haploid cells)

    Diploid = Full amount of chromosomes

    Haploid = Half amount of original chromosomes
