There are currently seven states that only have one Representative: Alaska, Delaware, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, and Wyoming.

There are other territories that don't have any Representatives in the House, but they do have a different kind of representation—the District of Columbia, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa each have one non-voting Delegate, and Puerto Rico has a non-voting Resident Commissioner that fills much the same role in the House. They can't vote, but they can serve on committees.

Representatives are allocated by population, which is counted every ten years by the census. This year, 2020, is a census year, and the House will be automatically reapportioned based on that data in 2023.

I don't get this and never will. America is one and has one president. Why would you need so many representatives that are not really working for you in the first place. The president is their boss so they will listen to him before they listen to you. Even though you are paying all their salaries. Why isn't the president a representative of all? So I do not understand this and never will. Just a waste of money you can use to enjoy life.

The U.S. Constitution provides for proportional representation in the U.S. House of Representatives. The number of representatives allocated to each of the 50 states is based on population as measured by the U.S. Census. Alaska, Delaware, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Vermont are the states that have only one representative in the House or Representatives.
