Three-fifths of a state's slave population counted toward representation and taxation.


The three-fifths compromise was necessary in order to gain the support of both the Northern and Southern states for how slaves would be counted for the purpose of apportioning representation in the U.S. House of Representatives. Taxation was also affected by this apportionment but the main issue was representation. If slaves were counted as a whole person, the South would have a larger representation; if slaves didn't count at all, the North would have a larger representation. So to satisfy each side, the Constitution stated that slaves would be counted as 3/5ths of a person; a compromise between the two extremes.

Well there were mainly two, states rights vs. federal rights (the main issue of all of American history) and representation of slaves in congress. The issue of states rights vs. federal rights produced the Connecticut Compromise, which formed two houses in the legislative branch of government, the Senate (federal rights) and the Congress (states rights). The issue of slave representation in Congress produced the Three-Fifths Compromise, which stated that every slave is three-fifths of a person when counting the population for the number of delegates in Congress.
