**Given:**

The total number of students in a college in the year 2016 is 2500. Of these, 55% are boys and the rest are girls. In the year 2017, the total number of students increased by 12%

**Calculation:**

Total number of students in college in 2017 = 2500 × 112/100 = 2800

**∴ Number of girls in college in 2017 = 2800 × 45/100 = 1260**
