    equation of a linear graph: y=mx+c, where: m=gradient of the line and c= intersection point with y-axis since u have y=(1/4)*x+2, therefore m=1/4.

    parallel lines have the same slope so SINCE the slope of the one you were given is 1/4 then the slope of any line parallel to it would be 1/4.

    if the line hav slope equal to m, the perpendicular line have slope -1/m
