During Constitutional Convention states could not decide on many issues because some states were big some small, some had large population some small, some had slavery some didn't. That's why they had to compromise on those issues: Great Compromise - bicameral Congress. House of Representatives is based on population of the state, while Senate is only 2 senators per state. This ensured equall representation of states in the government. Sectional Compromise - they decided not to talk about slavery for 20 years. 3/5th Compromise - slaves would count as 3/5 of population. Missouri Compromise - this compromise divided south and north, north states were free states and south states were slave states. This is why Constitution is a bunch of compromises, these are 3 major compromises. History Freak
