The objective of the Great Compromise was to balance the influence of large states and small states (measured by population) in the federal government. The main idea was to create a bicameral (two-house) legislature; the lower house (House of Representatives) would have representation based on state populations and would originate all revenue bills, while the upper house (Senate) would have equal representation across all states.
