## How do you calculate the number of mitotic divisions?

The cell will have to divide 7 times mitotically, to form 128 cells. The number of times a cell will have to divide mitotically is calculated by the **formula 2n**, where n is the number of times the cell is dividing.

## How do you calculate mitotic index?

Calculation. The mitotic index is **the number of cells undergoing mitosis divided by the total number of cells**.

## How do you calculate cell division?

For example, one bacterial cell will divide about every 20 min under standard conditions. For example, after the 6^{th} division there will be 64 cells. The formula to calculate the number in the nth generation is given by the formula **N = N _{} x 2^{n}** where n is the number of generations.

## How many times the cell divides in mitosis?

During mitosis one cell^{?} divides **once to** form two identical cells.

## What is separated during anaphase of mitosis?

During anaphase, **each pair of chromosomes** is separated into two identical, independent chromosomes. The chromosomes are separated by a structure called the mitotic spindle. … The separated chromosomes are then pulled by the spindle to opposite poles of the cell.

## How many mitosis generations are needed to produce 32 cells?

**5 successive** generations of mitosis must occur to produce 32 cells.

## How do you calculate the percentage of cells in each phase of mitosis?

Now we’ll **divide the total number of cells in each stage by the total number of cells counted**, and multiply by 100 to get the percentage of cells in each stage. We get 69.6 % cells in interphase, 12.5% in prophase, 8.9% in metaphase, 5.4% in anaphase, and 3.6% in telophase.

## What is mitosis ks3?

Mitosis is a type of cell division in which a diploid body cell copies itself and finally **divides into two identical diploid daughter cells** . The daughter cells are clones of each other. Every base pair of their DNA is identical.
