\" Three-fiths Compromise- the Great Compromise did not fully settle the debate over state representation in Congress. Northern and southern states also needed to compromise on how to determine population in order to calculate representation. Southern states wanted to count slaves fully (counting slaves would increase their state\'s population and number of elected representatives to the House). Northerners objected to counting slaves fully. 3/5ths of the slaves were eventually counted to determine each states population and representation in the House of Representatives. \"
