Slope of the parallel lines are equal.

slope of the given line is -2/3

Hence the equation of parallel line will be

y= -2/3 x+c

since line is passing through (2,-4) hence we get

-4 =-4/3+ c

solving we get c=-4+4/3 =-8/3

Hence eq of parallel line becomes

y=-2/3 x-8/3

Or; 

2x+3y+8= 0  answer
