    3 x 8 = 24
    3 batteries x 8V = 24V

    Try it with 3 batteries first, then series the other 3 and after you have 2 separate 24 v banks, then consider paralleling them.

    BE CAREFUL - there is lethal amounts of power stored in the batteries. Hook it up wrong and you have melted battery parts and acid steam all over the place !!
