How is representation divided in the senate and house of represenatives?
In the Senate, every state has two Senators. In the HOR, it is based on representation. One way to figure out how many HOR representatives a state has, subtract their electoral votes by two b/c a state's EV are equal to it's rep. in Congress (subtract the two senators; ex. DOfC has 1 HOR rep b/c 3 EV-2Sen.=1HOR rep).

What is the lowest number of house members any state can have?
The house of representatives may have 1 state rep at the very least. There are 435 house members (District of Columbia has 1 rep - constitutional amendment #23, 1961 - for a total of 436, but only for the electoral college - not for regular legislation). The states are granted house members based on population, which varies from year to year, so the number of reps is subject to change. However, the total number of reps is fixed @ 435. Hope that helps.
How many members are elected from each state?
What article mentions the senate?
Asked in US Constitution, US Government
Why are the House and Senate separate?
The House of Representatives and the Senate are separate because the government wanted to have groups of people vote on laws for the states themselves. So they mad the House of Reps. Proportional to the population of the state, like California has 52 people in the House of Reps. and Alaska only has 1 because of the population difference on the other hand the Senate is equal because each state has 2 Senators, both California and Alaska have 2 Senators.
What is the difference between the House and the Senate?
1)The House members are highly specialized. 2)Operation of the Senate is less centralized and less formal. 3)The House has a Rules Committee. There are many difference between the House of Representatives and the Senate, but there is one primary difference, which is that Representatives are elected according to population. A Representative is elected in an electoral district, not in an entire state, and therefore the more populous states get more Representatives according to their population. Sentarors represent a whole state, and there are exactly two Senators per state.

How is the legislature of the US set up?
The legislature of the US is a bicameral legislature consisting of the House of Representatives and the Senate. Each state is assigned a certain number of seats or representatives in the house that is determined based on the state population. The larger the population in a state, the more seats that state receives in the house. For example, Virginia has 11 representatives in the house whereas Maine only has 2 representatives. The senate however assigns two seats per state summing up to 100 seats in the senate. These two parties are responsible for making bills and scrutinizing it until it is passed in the house by a 1/2 majority and in some cases a 3/5 majority, whereas in the senate, the bill would need a 2/3 majority.
