Parallel lines have identical slopes.

Rewrite the given line equation into point-slope form:
\(3x + 2y = 8\)
\(2y = -3x + 8\)
\(y = -\frac{3}{2}x + 4\)

From the answer choices, the only line equation that has a slope identical slope to that in the question is \(y =\frac{-3}{2}x + 7\) -- that is,

Answer D
