46 chromosomes in each human body cell and 23 chromosomes in sex cells. Is this correct?

If this is wrong, please explain it to me properly. And please dumb down your answers, because I'm only 14.

    You're absolutely right, there are 23 pairs of chromosomes in nomrmal cells (somatic cells) (23x2 = 46) and 23 unpaired chromosomes in sex cells (gametes = egg or sperm) they're waiting to be paired up so they can form a fully functioning human.

    each human has 46 chromosones.

    23 chromosones come from your mother

    23 comes from your father.
