347XY as 347X0. Since 8 is a factor of 80.

347X0 is divisible by 8. It means last three digits 7X0 is divisible by 8.

Hence, X is 2 or 6

if X = 6, number is 34760. But this is not divisible by 80.

ifX = 2, number is 34720, which is divisible by 80.

Therefore, number is 34720 with X = 2 and Y = 0.

∴ x + y = 2 + 0 = 2.
