Homework Help: Question on genetics HW

  1. Oct 23, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A somatic mouse cell has 40 chromosomes, I know for meiosis 1 (prophase-telophase) it has 40 chromosomes and 80 chromatids. For meiosis 2 however I get confused. For prophase 2- telophase 2 would it then have 40 chromosomes and 160 chromatids? Thank you!

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    40 chromosomes and 160 chromatids?
