Southern states did not like the Three-Fifths Compromise because it reduced the size of their population counted for representation in Congress. Every five slaves would only count as three people when it came time to elect the members of the House of Representatives.
The answer to the mathematical equation of three fifths times two and two thirds is 1and 3/5 or 8/5.
Three fifths of a time
Slaves were counted as a whole instead of three fifths and the slaves were a lot cheaper in the time of war. Slaves were counted as a whole instead of three fifths and the slaves were a lot cheaper in the time of war.
then, there was representation by population and the law around that time stated that three-fifths of a slave would be counted in population. it was called the three-fifths compromise.
2/5 x 3= 6/5
Henry Clay did NOT write the Three-Fifths compromise. In fact, at the time that the Three-Fifths compromise was accepted by the government in 1787, Clay was only about 10 years old. Not to mention that the Three-Fifths compromise was first proposed about four years before that, in 1783, when Clay was only about 6 years old.
"...three for five" as stated on The Cosby Show is NOT a play on words as the answer on Wiki and other sites notes. It is a historical reference to the three-fifth rule, whereby free black slaves were counted as three-fifths of a white citizen for purposes of allocating congressional representatives among the states (five blacks were counted as three whites). Bill Cosby caveats his statement of equality and solidarity ("all for one and one for all") with the reference to a time in history when this equality did not exist.
It is 600
No. It is three thirty, but in five minutes time it will be three thirty-five.
Each time, you add one to the numerator and one to the denominator.
three fifths of senators can vote to limit debate on a subject to 30 hours of floor time
The cloture rule
7/8 x 13/4 = 91/32 = 2 and 27/32
America was worst than it is today and no this arrangement did not suit the country at the time
5 actually, the decimal of 3/5 is equal to 0.6. if you divide 3 by 0.6, you get five. this method works for other fraction equations as well. hope this helps and sorry some retard gave you nine. honestly, check your work next time.
yes....... use a calculator next time, please.
i hate this place
There have been three five-time nominees: Margaret Atwood, Beryl Bainbridge, and Ian McEwan.
1 can be described as 5/5. So, 3/5 can completely fit within 5/5 one time with 2/5 remaining.
2 fifths of a day is 9.6 hours.
