The expression nearly always is "24/7" (sometimes emphasized with "365"). I suppose it's because of the increasing units it describes (hours, days in week, days in year). The second option looks like "July 24th" to me.

If you have to choose between using "24/7" or "7/24" in a sentence, which way do you go?

Any particular reason for your choice?
