Is "X" considered 2 chromosomes (V + V) or just one?
trying to answer my own question here....one X is consided 2 chromosome only when they separate in anaphase but considered 1 chromosome at the start of mitosis?
so 46 chromosomes at mitosis= 96 chromosomes at anaphase = back to 46 chromosomes in each daughter cell
am i thinking the right way here?
Yes, you are thinking the right way. I hope you don't mean only the sexual X chromosome by using the letter 'X'. Anyway, for the mitosis of a 2n cell, you will have 4n chromosomes in anaphase.
