See a solution process below:


We can use the table below to identify and plot points from this equation:

enter image source here

graph{((x+4)^2+(y+17)^2-0.5)((x+2)^2+(y+9)^2-0.5)(x^2+(y+1)^2-0.5)((x-2)^2+(y-7)^2-0.5)((x-4)^2+(y-15)^2-0.5)=0 [-40, 40, -20, 20]}

We can now draw a line through the points to graph the equation.

graph{(y-4x+1)((x+4)^2+(y+17)^2-0.5)((x+2)^2+(y+9)^2-0.5)(x^2+(y+1)^2-0.5)((x-2)^2+(y-7)^2-0.5)((x-4)^2+(y-15)^2-0.5)=0 [-40, 40, -20, 20]}
