The error can either be thought of as 24/200 or 24/224.
You could say "the actual was 24/200 = 12% above the estimate" or you could say "the estimate was 24/224 = 10.7% below the actual"

gimme a sec
I think its 89
200/224 is 89%, but this is not the percent error.
so then what is it?
I can't say any better than I have above without context about how your curriculum is using language. Personally, I would judge both statements I've suggested as correct.
They didn't teach me either of those things so.... Well, thanks anyways.
The most important thing is that you understand that your estimate being 10.7% below actual is the same as finding the actual to be 12% above estimated.
