I would like to add that this compromise gave the South much more political power and changed history. For instance, in the Election of 1800, Thomas Jefferson defeated incumbent John Adams, but had there been no Three-Fifths Compromise, Adams would have won the election. Not only did the compromise give the South more members in the House, but it also gave them more Electoral College votes.

Answer:

All the states.

Explanation:

The three-fifths compromise counted only 3/5 of the slave population. What were they counted for? Representation in the house. The amount of representatives award to you State is based on your States population. The South wanted to count all of the salves, giving them more seats in the house. While the North did not want to count any of the slaves. So both states benefited from this compromise because, not all the slaves were counted, which was good for the North. But 3/5 of the slaves were counted, which was good for the South.
