When wishing  to derive satisfaction by seeing all data on a single
plot, I divide / multiply x or  y parameters by 10,100 etc., to bring
them within the same order of magnitude and dump them into a grid
using ImplicitPlot with same origin. E.g.,

Clear[x,y];
<< Graphics`ImplicitPlot` ;
ImplicitPlot[ {x^2 +y^2 - x y == 3 , y^2 == - x^2 + 4 x - 3, y ==
Cos[x], (y+1)^2 == 3 x },{x,0,4}, {y,-2,2}] ;
(*  ---  Four common curves plot-assembled by Mathematica in proper
positions and proportions on common x and y axes  ---- *)
