Running outlet off exsisting one
 
I didn't know where to post this , but I'm trying to install a new outlet off a old one , the outlet I wanna run off isn't at the end of the circuit , has 2 wires , one coming into box and one going out , what Am wondering about is , both the neaturals and hots are on this outlet , not pigtailed and what not , is that just a way of keeping the circuit running onto the next outlet , but if I took the wires out , would I have to pigtail all 3 hots + a extra onto that outlet and do that with the neatrul to?thats what I was gonna do, Will that mess anything up , do u need 2 hots and 2 neautrals on a outlet ? Can't u only have one hot and neatural as long as the tab isn't broken it will supply electric to both outlets ? Idk if u understand but any help would be appreciated thank you
