24. :)

There are always 24 hours in a day, as an hour is popularly defined as 1/24th of the time of about one rotation of the Earth.

When the Earth was rotating slower, hours were slightly longer.

we let go of the 360 day year because it no longer worked
but held on to 7 day week 24 hour day 60 min 60 sec
