Given the equation,

2x + 3y -8 =0

As we know that the condition for the   lines  a_1x+b_1y+c_1=0\:and\:a_2x+b_2y+c_2=0, for being parallel is,

\frac{a_1}{a_2}=\frac{b_1}{b_2}\neq\frac{c_1}{c_2}

So Any line with this condition can be  4x+6y-8=0

Here,

\frac{a_1}{a_2}=\frac{2}{4}=\frac{1}{2}

\frac{b_1}{b_2}=\frac{3}{6}=\frac{1}{2}

\frac{c_1}{c_2}=\frac{-8}{-8}=1

As

 \frac{1}{2}=\frac{1}{2}\neq1   the line satisfies the given condition.
