so the "n" refers to the number of chromatids? In kaplan under embryo meiosis section it says spermatogonia (46/2n) replicate their dna to have 46/4n dna, then undergo meiosis 1 and the daughter cells have 23/2n, shouldn't it be 23/4n because only the chromosomes split, not the chromatids (the 23 chromosomes still have 4 chromatids). Hope this makes sense.
