Answer

The answer is below.

Work Step by Step

The line with a slope of two is steeper. After all, imagine if these slopes represented a hill. With the slope of two, you go up two for every one step that you take. However, with the slope of 2/3, you only go up two every three steps you take. Thinking about it this way, it becomes clear that the slope of 2 is more steep.
