Answer:D The new line would be less steep than the original line.

Step-by-step explanation:Assuming the slope is change from 3 to 1/3,

the new line would be less steep.__

The steepness of a line increases as the magnitude of the slope increases. The slope 1/3 is less than 3, so a line with that slope is less steep than a line with a slope of 3.
