I'm solving a succession problem which involves 24^(1/3), but when I go to compute this it returns it as 2 · 3^(1/3) [I can't upload an image because I have no points my apologies]

    reset()
a=[(24)^(1/3)]
for n in [1..50]:
    a.append((24 + a[n-1])^(1/3))
a[4].show()

Any ideas why this is happening?

Notice that $24 = 2^3\cdot 3$ and thus $24^{1/3} = 2\cdot 3^{1/3}$ - what is your concern here?

I saw yes, but how can I make it just show 24^(1/3)?

To prevent 24^(1/3) from evaluation one can use SR(24).power(1/3, hold=True) instead.
