The South wanted to count slaves a people but not give them any rights. The North was more for rights, but if no rights, then no count. The government (House of Representatives) is filled by counting people in the State. So the compromise agreed upon fractionally counted Slaves as people with rights. Didn't give slaves any rights, but didn't give the Southern states all the power they wanted.
