Find the equation of the line that is parallel to the line 4x - 2y = 8 and which passes through the point (0,-8).

4x - 2y = 8 can be rearranged into point intercept form: y = 2x - 4

Parallel lines have the same slope, just different intercepts. The y intercept in the new equation is (0,-8) so the equation is $\boxed{y = 2x -8}$
