A line \( l \) is parallel to the planes \( -4x + y = 0 \) and \( x + 5z = 0. \) Given that it passes through the point \( (4, 0, 6), \) find the equation of \( l \) in the simplest form of
\[ \frac{x-a}{p} = \frac{y-b}{q} = \frac{z-c}{r}. \]

The following are the equations of lines that are parallel to one another:
\[ \begin{cases} \frac{x-1}{2} = \frac{y-2}{p} = \frac{z-4}{p} _,
\\\\ \frac{x-2}{q} = \frac{y-4}{2} = \frac{z-7}{3q-q^2}_,
\\\\ \frac{x}{50} = \frac{y}{11 r - 10}=\frac{z}{r^2} _.
\end{cases} \]
Find the value of \(p+q+r.\)
