Right.

So let's assume you've proved that with the conditions

p prime, p > 2

a,b,c positive integers with a < p

the equation a^p + b^p = c^p cannot hold.

But that doesn't help you prove, subject to the conditions

p prime, p > 2

a,b,c positive rationals with a < p

that the equation a^p + b^p = c^p cannot hold.

You are making a rather blatant logical error.

Assume that there exist a,b,c,p with the conditions

p prime, p > 2

a,b,c positive rationals with a < p

such that a^p + b^p = c^p.

You can scale a,b,c up to get positive integers A,B,C

such that A^p + B^p = C^p, but in scaling up, you can no

longer guarantee A < p, so there's no contradiction.
