Transcript of What compromises emerged from the Constitutional Convention?

the great compromise
each state gets an equal number but for every 30,000 one state gets another vote.
3/5 compromise
there was lots of debate on whether or not slaves should be counted towards population. After lots of argument it was resolved with the 3/5 compromise slaves would count as 3/5 a man. in other words lets say you had five slaves they would only count as 3.
slave trade compromise
shay's rebellion
Shay's rebellion was the eye opener to the federal government. after a group of armed farmers rioted the government that taxes were too high. This was one of the main reasons the federal gov debated on creating a new form of government.
