Y = X1/X2

Let Z = X1

=> X1 = Z and X2 = X1/Y = Z/Y

Now Jacobian:

J(X1,X2):

| dY/dX1 dY/dX2|

|dZ/dX1 dZ/dX2|

=> J(X1,X2) = dY/dX1 * dZ/dX2 - dY/dX2 * dZ/dX1

dY/dX1 = 1/X2; dY/X2 = -X1/X2^2; dZ/dX1 = 1; dZ/dX2 = 0

=> J(X1, X2) = 0 - (-X1/X2^2) * 1 = X1/X2^2

=> |J(X1,X2)| = X1/X2^2

I'm assuming Xa and X2 ...
