If \(\displaystyle x_{1}+x_{2}=x_{1}/x_{2},\)

then, solving for  \(x_{1}\) ,

\(\displaystyle x_{1}=\frac{x^{2}_{2}}{(1-x_{2})}\).

Now choose a value for x2, anything other than 1, and calculate the corresponding value of x1.

For example x2 = 2 gets you x1 = -4, and the quadratic

\(\displaystyle (x-2)(x+4)=x^{2}+2x-8=0.\)

There's an infinite number of possibilities.
