the equation of striaght line is 2x3y+8=0 find the equation of the straight line passing through (4,2)and parallel to L

Math 
Reiny,
Easiest way:
since the new equation is parallel to the given, it must start as
2x  3y + c = 0, only differing in the value of c
sub in the given point...
2(4)  3(2) + c = 0
c = 14
2x  3y  14 = 0 , done!
