Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

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

First Point: For #y = 0#

#x = -6 * 0#

#x = 0# or #(0, 0)#

Second Point: For #y = 1#

#x = -6 * -1#

#x = 6# or #(6, -1)#

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

graph{(x^2+y^2-0.025)((x-6)^2+(y+1)^2-0.025)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

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

graph{(x+6y)(x^2+y^2-0.025)((x-6)^2+(y+1)^2-0.025)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
