MATHEMATICA

a = 1; b = 1; c = 1; u = 0; v = 1; w = 3; d = 2;

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

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

N[t, 20]

u = N[t, 200];

u1 = RealDigits[u[[1]]]  (* A316166, greatest *)

u2 = RealDigits[u[[2]]]  (* A316164, least *)

u3 = RealDigits[u[[3]]]  (* A316165, middle *)
