The southern, slave-owning states wanted to count slaves as people for the purpose of congressional representation; that would give the southern states more representatives in the Congress. It was the Northern, abolitionist states that didn't want to count slaves as people; that would increase the power of the North's congressional representatives.

What happened in the three fifth compromise?

It was when the southerners wanted to include slaves in the population count even though they wouldn't let them vote. They wanted slaves to be counted because that would increase their states population, therefore giving them more represenatives in the House of Represenatives. The Northerners argued that since the slaves couldn't vote they sound not be counted. So, they agreed that 3/5 of the slaves in the state would be counted in the states population. That became known as the Three-fifths compromise. I am doing this for my homework now

What was the northern states and the southern states view on the 3 5 compromise?

The question was, how should slaves be counted for the purpose of Congressional representation? The South wanted to count all slaves as "population", because this would increase the number of Representatives from the slave states. The northern states didn't want to include slaves AT ALL; if they weren't fully citizens and couldn't vote, why should they be counted for purposes of representation? The "three fifths" compromise gave southern states some additional Congressional representation, without giving the South an overwhelming advantage.
