If a^p= c^p- b^p is true for a , b , c ,naturals a < p , is true for a rational , a < p and b , c naturals because c^p- b^p is natural.

We can divide a^p= c^p- b^p with k^p , k rational k > 1 and note (a/k) = q ,

q^p = (c/k)^p - (b/k)^p with q rational q < p.

Let?s pick d positive integer , p < d , d?b < c and
assume that d^p+b^p=c^p .

We can find k rational number such d/k < p and we have

(d/k)^p + (b/k)^p = (c/k)^p which is
false of course because d/k < p
