See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, solve for two points which solve the equation and plot these points:

**First Point:** For

**Second Point:** For

We can next plot the two points on the coordinate plane:

graph{(x^2+(y+7)^2-0.075)((x-3)^2+(y+8)^2-0.075)=0 [-20, 20, -15, 5]}

Now, we can draw a straight line through the two points to graph the line:

graph{(y + (1/3)x + 7)(x^2+(y+7)^2-0.075)((x-3)^2+(y+8)^2-0.075)=0 [-20, 20, -15, 5]}
