$$\mathrm{From}\:\mathrm{the}\:\mathrm{figure}\:\mathrm{we}\:\mathrm{have}:\frac{\mathrm{c}}{\mathrm{x}^{\mathrm{2}} }+\frac{\mathrm{b}}{\mathrm{x}}=\mathrm{x} \\$$$$\Leftrightarrow\mathrm{x}^{\mathrm{3}} −\mathrm{bx}−\mathrm{c}=\mathrm{0}\:\left(\ast\right) \\$$$$\Rightarrow\mathrm{x}=\:^{\mathrm{3}} \sqrt{\frac{\boldsymbol{\mathrm{c}}+\sqrt{\boldsymbol{\mathrm{c}}^{\mathrm{2}} −\frac{\mathrm{4}\boldsymbol{\mathrm{b}}^{\mathrm{3}} }{\mathrm{27}}}}{\mathrm{2}}\:}+\:^{\mathrm{3}} \sqrt{\frac{\boldsymbol{\mathrm{c}}−\sqrt{\boldsymbol{\mathrm{c}}^{\mathrm{2}} −\frac{\mathrm{4}\boldsymbol{\mathrm{b}}^{\mathrm{3}} }{\mathrm{27}}}}{\mathrm{2}}} \\$$$$\left(\boldsymbol{\mathrm{see}}\:\:\boldsymbol{\mathrm{solution}}\:\boldsymbol{\mathrm{in}}\:\boldsymbol{\mathrm{question}}\:\mathrm{100146}\:\right. \\$$$$\left.\boldsymbol{\mathrm{above}}\:\boldsymbol{\mathrm{the}}\:\boldsymbol{\mathrm{equation}}\:\left(\ast\right)\right) \\$$
