See the answer below.

Work Step by Step

Density is mass divided by the volume, which is proportional to the radius. Atomic mass increases along the period, with the increase in the number of protons and neutrons. Atomic radius decrease along the period with the increase in effective nuclear charge. Density increases along the period because it's a division of an increasing number by a decreasing one.
