i have a 16gb (one piece) 3000mhz memory and 8gb (one piece) 3200mhz memory , i install them as a dual but i can't run them on 3000mhz ( auto is 2400 ) and every time set them to the lowest mhz the pc crash so what's the better 24gb with 2400 and dual or 16gb with 3000 no dual

That's usual result of mixing RAM. Real reason they come in matched pairs.
What's better depends on what you need more, peed or quantity although if it's running in dual channel at 2400MHz it may be better because dual channel brings about 25-30% better memory performance over single.

Depending on the CPU/motherboard you have, you might be in single channel mode anyway. AMD does not like to run mismatched sized DIMMs in dual channel mode.

The first rule for ram is to buy enough for your needs.
16gb is usually sufficient for gaming.
Unless you are multitasking or are a heavy user of chrome or discord, 16gb is sufficient.
What is your cpu and make/model of motherboard?
Intel is tolerant of mismatched ram, ryzen, not so much.
