Straight line equation and parallel line.?

Find the equation of the straight line which passes through (4, -2) and is parallel to the line with the equation 2x - 3y How do you get this answer 2x-3y = 14 because I know you can get his answer as well 3y= 2x-14. Thoigh I specificaly want this answer 2x-3y = 14. Though would both be correct anyway? show more Find the equation of the straight line which passes through (4, -2)
and is parallel to the line with the equation 2x - 3y

How do you get this answer 2x-3y = 14 because I know you can get his answer as well 3y= 2x-14. Thoigh I specificaly want this answer 2x-3y = 14.


Though would both be correct anyway?
Update: y + 2 = 2/3 x - 8/3 Multiply 3 on both sides
3(y + 2) = 3( 2/3x - 8/3)
3y+6 = 2x-8

I don't get why you have to multiply by 3 can't you just leave the answer as a fraction?
