Are Formal changes to the Constitution frequent?

Formal changes to the US Constitution are called Amendments. There are 27 in all. The first 10 are the Bill of Rights. Those ten and two more were added in the first few years after the US Constitution was created. Just 15 amendments have been approved in the last 200 years. That means the average time between amendments is about 13 years. Only 1 has been approved in the last 38 years.

What are two pieces of evidence that prove the amending the constitution is difficult?

Article 5: proposing an amendment requires a vote of two-thirds of both houses of congress, or a national convention called by Congress at the request of two thirds of the legislatures of all states. Thus, either Congress or the states can start the process of amending the Constitution. Proposing an amendment is only the first step/part. Before an amendment can become part of the constitution, it must be approved by the legislatures( or by special conventions) in three quarters of the states. Once an amendment is approved, it becomes part of the supreme law of the land. Over years, people have suggested more than 10,000 amendments to the constitution. Only 27 of these have been approved. The 10 first amendments are called the" BILL OF RIGHTS". Specific rights to the citizens. The other 17 amendments became part of the constitution one at a time. Some of them changed the way certain public officials are elected. Others guaranteed the rights of certain groups of Americans. 13 amendment made slavery illegal. 19 amendment gave the women the right to vote. 26 amendment gave the right to vote to all citizens over the age of 18,Cnces are that only a few amendments will be part of the constitution.
