Because the the Senate was set up to have only two members per state, and the House was set up to have an arbitrary, fixed but changable number of members, representing each state based on population. Some Founding Fathers feared being dominated by states with large populations, while others feared being dominated by sparsely populated states, so this was a compromise..it gives BOTH groups a voice

The number of members of the senate as compared to the house of representatives is?

To keep voting fair. There are 2 parts of Congress. The Senate and the House of Representatives. Each State of the United States of America has 2 elected officials that represent the State in the Senate. Each state is allowed a different number of representatives in the House of Representatives based on the states population. For example: Wisconsin would have 2 Senators and 8 Reps, and California would have 2 Senators but 53 Reps. The House allows larger states to have more voting power than smaller states, but the Senate keeps it in check so the larger states can not completely overpower the smaller states. There are: 100 Members in the Senate 435 plus 6 non-voting members in the House of Representatives.
