x + (x+8) = 60

Therefore Terri stocked 26 boxes and Kay stocked 26+8 boxes = 34 boxes

Explanation:

Let the boxes stocked by Terri = x

Therefore the boxes stocked by Kay = x + 8 because he stocked 8 more boxes

Hence since they both stocked 60 boxes

x+x+8 = 60

2x = 60 - 8

2x = 52

divide both sides by 2

x = 26

Therefore Terri stocked 26 boxes and Kay stocked 26+8 boxes = 34 boxes
