He bought 17 books.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that:

Total money spent = \$89

Cost of each book = \$5

Shipping price = \$4

We have to find, Total number of books

So if the number of books be represented by b, the equation will become:

Cost of one book * total number of books + shipping price = total money

Putting values we get:

5*b + 4 = \$89

By simplifying:

5*b = 89 – 4

5*b = 85

Dividing both sides by 5 we get:

b = 17

So the total number of books bought is 17.
