## What is a diploid number of 8 chromosomes?

Diploid cells always have an even number of chromosomes because the chromosomes are found in pairs (2n). Haploid cells only contain half the number of chromosomes (n). So you just divide 8 by 2, which equals **4**.

## What is the diploid number if the haploid number is 8?

there are **46** in diploid cells.

## What is metaphase?

Metaphase is **the third phase of mitosis**, the process that separates duplicated genetic material carried in the nucleus of a parent cell into two identical daughter cells. … There is an important checkpoint in the middle of mitosis, called the metaphase checkpoint, during which the cell ensures that it is ready to divide.

## What is a diploid number?

Diploid describes a **cell that contain two copies of each chromosome**. … Among those, there are two sex-determining chromosomes, and 22 pairs of autosomal, or non-sex, chromosomes. The total number of chromosomes in diploid cells is described as 2n, which is twice the number of chromosomes in a haploid cell (n).

## How do you find diploid and haploid numbers?

The diploid (**2n**) number of chromosomes is the number of chromosomes in a somatic, body cell. This number is double the haploid(n) or monoploid (n) number. The haploid (n) number of chromosomes is the number of chromosomes found in a gamete of reproductive cell. This number is half of the diploid (2n) number.
