Best Answer

The Virginia Plan wanted representation based on the population of a state. The New Jersey Plan wanted to all states to have the same number of representatives no matter the size of the state or it's population. A larger state would want the Virginia Plan because they would have more government representatives. Smaller states would support the New Jersey Plan because they would have equal representatives.
