Why was the fraction three-quarters chosen to represent several states in Article 5 of the US Constitution?

Article V requires that for an Amendment to the Constitution to be effective, it must be approved by either three-quarters of the legislatures or Constitutional conventions of all the states. This fraction was chosen because the framers of the Constituton agreed that the Constitution itself had to be approved by the 3/4 of the states. Since approval of 3/4 of the states was needed to approve the Constitution in the first place, it made sense to require the same percentage of states to agree to amend it.
