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 graph the two points on the coordinate plane:

graph{(x^2+(y-2)^2-0.075)((x-4)^2+y^2-0.075)=0 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}

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

graph{(2x+4y - 8)(x^2+(y-2)^2-0.075)((x-4)^2+y^2-0.075)=0 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}
