According to the U.S. Census Bureau in 2009 there were 21,854,374 veterans in the United States. Veterans of the Korean War accounted for 12.4% of that total, while 10.7% were veterans of World War II. What is the positive difference between the numbers of veterans of the Korean War and WWII in the United States in 2009? Express your answer to the nearest whole number.

21,854,374/100=218,543.74
Korean: 218,543.74*12.4=2709942.376 which will just be 2709942
WWII: 218,543.74*10.7=2338418.018 which will just be 2338418
Then subtract: 27099422338418=371524.
