1 g fat = 9 calories
1 g carb = 4 calories
1 g protein = 4 calories

that would be a 24-24-52 meal

If you ate a meal consisting of 1 g of carbs, 1 g of protein, and 1 gram of fat. I have no idea what speck of food that would be.

24% carbs
24% protein
52% fat

Reso:
It's simple..

Example
Meal:300calories

40%carbs
30%protein
30%fat

40%carbs=300calsx0,4=120cals
1gram of carbs has 4 cals,so
120/4=30grams of carbs

30%protein=300calsx0,3=90cals
1gram of protein has 4 cals,so
90/4=22,5grams of protein

30%fat=300calsx0,3=90cals
1gram of fat has 9 cals,so
90/10=10grams of fat

Again,it's up to you.
If you want to use it when you're under a bulking diet,you'll just have a higher caloric intake than your active metabolic rate.

Eitherway,you'll have to consume less calories than your a.m.r.

The macros ratio is not the first thing you should care about.
