The Virginia Plan was by the people where as the New Jersey Plan was by the states. The legislature consisted of two houses: Senate and House of representatives.

Both consisted of three branches of government and both are necessary to reach an agreement.

The Virginia plan appealed to the delegates from Mass. Penn., New York and Virginia.

The New Jersey plan appealed to the delegates from Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland .

The New Jersey plan was presented by William Paterson from New Jersey.

and the Legislature only consisted of one house. The New Jersey Plan made small states equal the large states.
