The answer depends on where the "original" colony is meant to have been!
Its the product
the original number could have been anything from 45 to 54
Give the numbers some names: End result number ==> R Base number ==> B You said that 2.75 percent of B reached R. .0275 B = R Divide both sides of this equation by .0275 B = R / .0275 Divide the 'end result' by 0.0275. The answer will be the 'base number'.
I had to call my son the computer whiz in LA to help me out on this one. They owed him some time in the massively parallel processor complex where he works, so he logged in and ran this one for me last night. Here's what he came up with:If I drop one of something blindly into a bucket and then I look in the bucket and there are two of them in there, I can logically conclude that the thing that was in there before must have been exactly like the thing I dropped in, and that there used to be one of them where now there are two of them. So the original number was also -5, just like the amount you added.

As a result of automation, there are some jobs where the number of positions available has been reduced. They include secretarial jobs, like office secretary and executive secretary.
It's possible that some have been deleted.

A quotient is the result of dividing two numbers. If we divide one number into another number, the result is the quotient. It might be argued that the quotient is the ratio of two numbers, but what has been stated applies.
Just work the problem backwards. The answer is 248. Something was divided by 12 in order to get it. If we MULTIPLY 248 by 12, we will find that number. We get 2,976. Now, we need to ADD 14, since 14 had originally been subtracted from the number we're looking for. Adding 14 we get 2,990.
The rule when rounding off numbers is "If the first figure to be discarded is 5 or more then the previous figure is increased by 1". 13.55 (2dp) can be obtained from numbers with 3 decimal places ranging from 13.545 to 13.554. Six possibilities for the original number are 13.545, 13.547, 13.549, 13.551, 13.552, 13.554. NOTE : If the choice of original numbers were extended to numbers having (say) 6 decimal places of figures then the six possible numbers could have been chosen from the range 13.545001 to 13.554999
