Word problem for algebra homework

I'm usually ok with these problems but this one is throwing me off.. just not sure what they are wanting me to do?

"College enrollments across the United states, community college enrollment grew by 1,400,000 students from fall 2007 to fall 2010. In California, community college enrollment declined by 110,171 students from fall 2009 to fall 2010"

Use integers to write the change in enrollment:
(A) in the U.S. from fall 2007 to fall 2010
(B) in California from fall 2009 to fall 2010

Do you understand the point of this question and why they specify "integers"? It's really just testing whether you understand the definition of "integer". The change in the U.S.A. is "+140,000" and the change in California is "-110,171".
