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+5)^2-0.1075)((x+2)^2+(y+1)^2-0.1075)=0 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}

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

graph{(y + 2x + 5)(x^2+(y+5)^2-0.1075)((x+2)^2+(y+1)^2-0.1075)=0 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}
