    Didn't you just ask this? Also, this is the math-subform, not biology.

    End of mitosis produces diploid number of chromosomes, meiosis, haploid

    Mitosis is simple cell division, ending up with two identical cells, each with both pairs of every gene. Is that correct?

    i'd highlight 'genetically identical'

    or is it .. Mitosis is the process by which cells split to make identical cells.

    one of the very important differences between mitosis and meiosis is genetically identical or nonidentical cells as a result of the division process

    is this a better way to explain it? Mitosis is the process by which cells split to make identical cells.

    before asking, its better to try searching and reading stuff, if still unclear - you can ask and at least you will have at least some information regarding what you are asking from your own searching :) which helps you and us, people that are/will be helping you :D

    meiosis is a process of cell division that divides a parent cell to create four new cells.

    thats insufficient but it is one of the differences between mitosis and meiosis

    hmm there is a very important similarity how does cell division start? in general.
