Question about Cars & Trucks
That's a 6 gallon capacity system. (4 quarts to a gallon, 23.6 divided by 4 = just under 6 gallon.)
You would need 3 gallons of antifreeze to make a 50/50 solution of antifreeze and water. that's a standard solution, an all around best solution. Also recommended that you use distilled water to reduce corrosion.

23 quarts is nearly 6 gallons which is a big cooling system so I guess it belongs to a commercial vehicle or PSV.
The minimum safe antifreeze solution is 25% but this gives only drive away protection for a few degrees of frost and the windchill factor can still freeze the radiator if the engine isn't thoroughly warmed before driving away.
Practically speaking a 33.3% solution is reckoned to provide the minimum protection as the coolant will turn to a semi-solid mush under very low temperatures and limit the possible expansion damage. It should be possible to start the engine. No freezing is likely to take place in most frosts experienced by the temperate regions.
A 50% solution is reckoned to be the minimum for good frost protection and makes best use of the antifreeze's anti-corrosion additives as well as providing a good summer coolant.
A 60% solution is reckoned to provide comprehensive protection.
