I am comfused about meiosis and mitosis. First of all, both are forms of asexual reproduction, right?
I know that in mitosis, you end up with two offspring. In meiosis, you end up with four.
I don't get the part about the chromosomes. If you start out with a certain number, like 4, will you end up with 4 chromosomes ine each offspring, or half that, 2?

Thanks.

Although there are more sites, these look like they would cover what you need.
