What is the difference between mitosis and meiosis?

Mitosis is the cell division that produces 2 daughter cells with genetically identicle DNA to the parent cell. These are none as diploid cells.

Meiosis requires two stages of cell division to produce 4 daughter cells each with half the original number of chromosomes as the parent cell. These are known as haploid cells.
