Actually Peter has 24 more marbles than Phil. This is because Phil has 12 marbles, and the difference between 12 and 36 is 24.

It's not asking for the difference. How does 24 +12=48?
More means addition.

lulia K. is right. Peter has 36 marbles and Phil has 12 marbles. "How many more marbles does Peter have than Phil?"
36-12=24
