Your equation is in the Slope-Intercept form:
y=mx+c
where m is the slope; in your case slope is m=−4.
The parallel must have the same slope, i.e., −4.

This equation is in the form y=mx+c
Perpendicular gradients are negative reciprocals of each other.
${m}_{1}×{m}_{_}2=-1$
The negative reciprocal of -4 is $\frac{1}{4}$
Check: $-4×\frac{1}{4}=-1$
