Find the coordinates get out of that square then take one step back and see the answer

24-34-45-24-21-24-12-34-15-44-35-22-45-24-21-14-35-15-21-23-24-52-21-43

Begin with the ciphertext:
24-34-45-24-21-24-12-34-15-44-35-22-45-24-21-14-35-15-21-23-24-52-21-43

Find the coordinates
get out of that square

Decode using a standard Polybius square to get plaintext:
iouifiboetpguifdpefhiwfs
The standard polybius square does not distinguish between letters i and j, so the following is also valid plaintext given the ciphertext:
jouifiboetpguifdpefhjwfs

then take one step back and see the answer

Take our second decoded plaintext and use the caesar cipher to rotate all letters back by 1:
