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-1)^2-0.035)((x-1)^2+(y+4)^2-0.035)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

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

graph{(y+5x-1)(x^2+(y-1)^2-0.035)((x-1)^2+(y+4)^2-0.035)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
