Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

This phrase is the key part  (times as many) and it sim[ply means a number times the other.

In our case it means 3 times 24 or three multiplied by 24 times.

it means 3 x 24= 72

However there are variations to the same whereby the numbers may be used to mean objects:

A good example is

john has 15 books as many times as peter. This is to mean if peter has say 5 book then John has 15 times 5

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
