FORMULA

greatest root: -(3/2) + sqrt(19/3) cos(1/3 arctan((4 sqrt(427/3))/3))

middle root: -(3/2) - 1/2 sqrt(19/3) cos(1/3 arctan((4 sqrt(427/3))/3)) + 1/2 sqrt(19) sin(1/3 arctan((4 sqrt(427/3))/3))

least root: -(3/2) - 1/2 sqrt(19/3) cos(1/3 arctan((4 sqrt(427/3))/3)) - 1/2 sqrt(19) sin(1/3 arctan((4 sqrt(427/3))/3))

EXAMPLE

MATHEMATICA

a = 1; b = 1; c = 1; u = 0; v = 2; w = 4; d = 2;

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];

RealDigits[u[[1]]]  (* A316167, greatest *)

RealDigits[u[[2]]]  (* A316168, middle *)

RealDigits[u[[3]]]  (* A316169, least *)
