Need help with apparent “contradiction”

So I was going through my reading and I came across a note that pointed out these two different verses. I will mention that I’m a Christian but I thought you guys could help. 🙂

In Numbers 4:3 it says “From thirty years old and upward even until fifty years old, all that enter into the host, to do the work in the tabernacle of the congregation.

Then in Numbers 8:24 it’s says

24 “This applies to the Levites: from twenty-five years old and upward they[a] shall come to do duty in the service of the tent of meeting.”

How would one reconcile this? What age did a Levite start working? Thanks for any help
