Maple Solution - Coded
Use the implicitplot command shown below. If the plots package has already been loaded, then the second (shorter) form of the command can be used. If the curve appears ragged, try adding the option gridrefine = n, where n is a positive integer. Start with n=1 and increase n to get smoother and smoother curves.
