3/5 Compromise

Congress decided that the House of Representative would be based on the population of the state. Although the Northern states didn't have a problem with this agreement, they didn't think it would be fair for the Southern states to count the slave in order have more representatives. So both the Southern and Northern states came to an agreement that for every 5 slave would be counted as 3 free people.

Checks and Balance

The constitution divided the government into 3 branches, Judicial- Court system , Legislative- makes laws, Executive- president & cabinet. This was created so that not only one branch would have too much power to control. All three of the branches would have to agree in order to pass a law.

Ratification of the constitution

The constitution would not be approved unless it had the Bill of Rights. The bill of Rights was created to show the independent rights of the citizens. Federalist began to make posters and articles supporting the constitution. On the other hand, Anti-Federalist felt like this would destroy the nation.
