The basis for the number of a state's representatives in the United States Congress is determined by population size. This is often referred to as the principle of "One person, one vote" or the concept of proportional representation. Each state is allocated a certain number of representatives in the House of Representatives based on its population as determined by the decennial census.

What is the The Connecticut Compromise?

The Connecticut compromise is the same exact thing as the great compromise its just another name for it. so the Connecticut compromise/ the great compromise is when the larger states wanted the representatives to be determined on population and the smaller states wanted the representatives to be determined on equality/ equal amount of people on each side for representatives. so they came up with The House of Representatives and the Senate to solve the problem. The great compromise solved a lot of problems and issues that people had.
