Final Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Mitosis is the process of one cell replicating and making 2 identical cells.  In mitosis the cell replicates every single thing within the cell.  After this replication, the cell splits into 2 identical cells.  The physical process of the cell splitting is called cytokinesis.  Therefore, mitosis could not occur without cytokinesis.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
