A slightly ambiguous question

two possible answers

24-1/8 = 23 7/8

24 - 1/8(24) = 21

That is kind of ambiguous; there are two possible answers.

24 - 1/8 = 23 7/8 or 23.875

24 - (1/8(24)) = 24 - 3 = 21

I understand it as "taking away" 1/8 not "decreasing" 1/8.

 

Therefore answer = 24 - 1/8 = 23 7/8 = 23.875.
