What was the great compromise state about representation in the house of representatives and the senate?

The number of representatives in the House of Representatives for each state depends on the states population. During the Constitutional Congress in 1787, delegates proposed different methods of calculating this number. The final two plans were the Virginia Plan and the New Jersey Plan. Each plan had a different way to control the states. The Virginia plan was to have the number of representatives be based on population, while the New Jersey plan was to have the same number of representatives for each state, regardless of population. Since there was the delegates couldn't agree on which method to use, Roger Sherman suggested the Great Compromise, which helped settle this argument/problem. One legislature, the House of Representatives, is based on population. The other legislature, the Senate, is made up of two people from each state.

Why Virginia Plan is an important part of our nation's history?

If it weren't for the Virginia plan there probably would be no House of Representatives. This is because the Virginia plan stated that the number of representatives that each state has in congress should be based on the population of the state. Since the New Jersey plan stated that each state should have an equal amount of representatives, a compromise was made that is known as the great compromise. Today we have a senate where each state has an equal amount of representives (2). We also have the house of representatives where the amount of representatives is based on the population of the state.
