One of the most important compromises is the Great Compromise. It was a compromise between two plans pushed forward; the Virginia plan and the New Jersey plan. The Virginia plan wanted representation in congress to be based off of states population. The New Jersey plan wanted equal representation for each state no matter the size. Ultimately the great compromise combined both of these plans and set up what we know today as the House of Reps. and Congress. One based on population of each state, and the other based off of two senators per state appointed by state legislatures.
