Each state has two Senators. The number of Representatives each state has will vary by country and the size of the country. Larger states like California and Texas will have more representatives than smaller states. They also have different functions. For example, Representatives initiate impeachment, while the Senate decides on it.

These representatives represent their state, and the number of representatives in the House depends on the population of the state. The higher the population, the more representatives come from that state. There are 435 representatives. In the Senate, two senators are elected from each state. Therefore, 100 senators represent the 50 states in the United States.
