middle: -(1/3) - 4/3 Cos[1/3 ArcTan[(9 Sqrt[47])/17]] + (4 Sin[1/3 ArcTan[(9 Sqrt[47])/17]])/Sqrt[3]

least: -(1/3) - 4/3 Cos[1/3 ArcTan[(9 Sqrt[47])/17]] - (4 Sin[1/3 ArcTan[(9 Sqrt[47])/17]])/Sqrt[3]

EXAMPLE

greatest root: 2.0861301976514940912...

middle root: -0.57199326831620301856...

MATHEMATICA

a = 1; b = 1; c = 1; u = 0; v = 1; w = 3; d = 1;

r[x_] := a/(x + u) + b/(x + v) + c/(x + w);

t = x /. ComplexExpand[Solve[r[x] == d, x]]

N[t, 20]

u = N[t, 200];
