The Three Fifths compromise
By: Cade Ruttley
Their was once a debate over if slaves. The Southern Delegates wanted slaves to get counted towards population, but the Northerners wanted slaves to determine taxes, but not representation.
To resolve this problem between the states some delegates thought of a compromise
The final decision to resolve the problem was to count three-fifths of the state's slave population and to count it towards representation. The compromise was called, "The Three Fifths Compromise".
The Three Fifths Compromise was important because it allowed 3/5 of the slave population to count towards representation allowing the southern states to get more power in congress.
