Hi my name is virgina and my plan is that we should count the slaves to give us more representatives in the house of representatives.
My name is new jersey and am a small state and the enslaved people should not be able to vote and they should not count for population because we are a small state compared to
The Great Compromise
The 3/5 compromise was between the southern and the northern and the states reach during the conevention in Philadelphia. They came to a compromise because the slaves wouldn’t count a a single person and get more representatives than smaller states.
We the north want the south to pay taxes for there slaves and for them not to count for the population and they should also ban slavery
We the south want the enslaved people count for population for we can have more representatives in the house of representative.
The 3/5 Compromise
Each enslaved person counted as 3/5 people of a person for taxes for population for the house of representatives that is the compromise that the north and the south agreed to .
