Fractional Age Assumptions
How do we deal with a fractional age assumption question (udd, constant, hyperbolic) when s+t > 1? Plugging the values into given formulas does not work.

Take care of the integral part, then use the fractional age assumption for the fractional part.
For example, express as or express as

He was just giving you the formula for the final fractional piece. E.g., the complete expression for the second would be = +

Once a probability takes you outside a single integer year of age, it's often simplest to find the equivalent set of lx values from your yearlong probabilities, express your complicated probability in terms of lx values, and then interpolate as needed (linear on lx, on 1/lx, or on ln(lx)) to get those lx values.

No, because is not the same as qx (and similarly for the term you changed to px).

Can anyone help me with what u_(x+t) would be if t>1? We have that u(x+t) = q_x/(1t*q_x) for when t<1 under the UDD assumption, but I can't seem to find a solution for when t>1.

If you stop and think about it, you're asking a rather silly question. Fractional age assumptions are for the pattern of mortality between integral ages. So they tell you how to get (for example) mu_50.2 from q50. They wouldn't tell you how to get mu_51.2 (that's 50+1.2) from q50, because that's not in the year starting with age 50.
You could say mu_(50+1.2)=mu_(51.2)=mu_(51+.2) and then evaluate it under udd by the formula you already gave as q_51/(1.2*q_51).
