Im reading two strings from a file to compare them, so i need to convert them into integers

if i read like this im getting 2 strings that i want
$x = $file[2];               (32212254720 )
$y = $file[3];               (8010207232)
when i convert them, im getting same values to both

$x= intval($file[2]);      (2147483647)
$y = intval($file[3]);     (2147483647)
