Using the DateAdd Function to Subtract a Day from UTCNow

I  have a Flow that is set to run once a day. I am trying to capture historical data on a daily 24 hour basis. Inside my GET Request API URl I need to specify the date ranges (Start & End UTC).  I have initialized Variables that can call My End-date UTC is = Utcnow(). I need to set my Start-date UTC to 24 hours prior to whenever the End-date Utcnow() is set. I am aware of the ability to use the Dateadd function but I keep running into errors.

@Anonymous one alternative way to do it is to use the Get past time action and set it to 1 day.
