See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, solve for the

**x-intercept - set y = 0 and solve for x:**

**y-intercept - set x = 0 and solve for y:**

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

graph{(x^2+(y+1)^2-0.025)((x-(1/2))^2+y^2-0.025)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

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

graph{(2x-1-y)(x^2+(y+1)^2-0.025)((x-(1/2))^2+y^2-0.025)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
