Depending on the population of each state. They are divided into congressional district which each contain around 650000 people. There is one representative for each congressional district. No matter how small the population is though, there must be at least one representative for each state. Currently in 2009 there are 345 representatives in the house of representatives and 100 senators in the senate.
