FORMULA

greatest root: -(5/3) + (2/3) sqrt(13) cos((1/3) arctan(6 sqrt(61)))

****

middle: -(5/3) - (1/3) sqrt(13) cos((1/3) arctan(6 sqrt(61))) - sqrt(13/3) sin((1/3) arctan(6 sqrt(61)))

****

least: -(5/3) - (1/3) sqrt(13) cos((1/3) arctan(6 sqrt(61))) + sqrt(13/3) sin((1/3) arctan(6 sqrt(61)))

EXAMPLE

greatest root: 0.4234942709347976489...

middle root: -1.683761836678034312...

least root: -3.739732434256763336...

MATHEMATICA

a = 1; b = 1; c = 1; u = 0; v = 2; w = 4; d = 3;

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

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

N[t, 20]

y = Re[N[t, 200]];

RealDigits[y[[1]]] (* A316257, greatest *)

RealDigits[y[[2]]] (* A316255, least *)

RealDigits[y[[3]]] (* A316256, middle *)
