color(Red)(Note: Please verify the Question. It may be $y - 4 x = 6$ or $y - 4 = 6 x$*

Assuming your question is correct, here is the Solution:

2 parallel lines have the SAME slope/inclination

To get the Slope of $y - 4 = 6$, we simply write it using the Slope Intercept Form

The Slope Intercept form of the equation is written as $y = m x + c$
where $m$ is the Slope and $c$ is the Y intercept

$y - 4 = 6$

$y = 6 + 4$

$y = 10$

$y = 0 \cdot x + 10$

The Slope of the line with the equation $y - 4 = 6$ is zero. Hence the Slope of the line parallel to this one will also be color(green)(zero.
