Answer:108 books.

Step-by-step explanation:Let the number of magazines = m

Let the number of books = b

Given the following data;Total number of m & b = 162

Translating the word problem into an algebraic equation, we have;……equation 1

……equation 2

Substituting equation “1” into equation “2” we have;m = 54

Now to find the number of books;

Substituting the value of “m” into the equation, we have;

b = 108Therefore, the total number of books in the library is 108 books.
