solve(x^K + d == R, x)
I am declaring these variables and assumptions:
var('K, d, R')
assume(K>0)
assume(K, 'real')
assume(R>0)
assume(R<1)
assumptions()
︡> [K > 0, K is real, R > 0, R < 1]
Yet when I run the solve, I obtain the following error:

Apparently, maxima is asking whether K is an integer? But I explicitly declared it 'real'!
How can I spell out to maxima that it should not assume that K is an integer?
