Why did the northern states not want to count slaves?

The northern states didn't have slavery as the southern states did, and they were smaller. They were afraid that if slaves were counted as part of the population that would give the southern states an advantage when they were represented in Congress. In 1790 35% of the population in VA was slave, so that can make a difference in the balance of power between states.

Were there any problems with the Constitutional Convention?

One of the major problems/differences was that the smaller states were afraid that the larger states would have more power in the government. The discussion concerning if there would be two houses in Congress compared to one brought this out. States like Del were afraid that a southern state like VA who counted slaves as part of the population would have more votes in Congress. In 1790 35% of the population in VA was slave giving them a large population count. The compromise came in the VA Plan where two houses were set up in Congress. The Senate gave each state two Senators and the House was based on population. To eliminate the advantage of slaves in the count each slave was counted as only 3/4 of a person.
