    (c) Since the credit crunch many financial institutions have reduced the amount they are prepared to lend to people for a mortgage. Imagine that your local bank would previously allow you to borrow 3 times your salary, whereas it will now only lend you 2 times your salary. Using improper factions to help you solve the problem and on the basis that your salary is £18,000, determine how much less your bank is now prepared to offer you for a mortgage.

    Let a, b be positive integers, then x^{a/b}=(x^a)^{1/b} and something to the power 1/b is the b-th root of that something

    Part (a) cant be answered as you have omited vital information.

    For part (b) I'm puzzled as to how to do this in a natural way with improper fractions (that is it is trivial to do the obvious way, but that does not involve fractions at all).
