    Let UNITs guide you; always USE THEM in your calculation to prevent errors

    moles of Na in samp = 0.78 g/ atwt Na = ??

    x moles NaBr * MW NaBr + (moles Na - x moles NaBr) * MW NaCl = 2.01 g

    x moles NaBr = [2.01 g - moles Na * MW NaCl] / [MW NaBr - MW NaCl] = ??
    g NaBr = x moles NaBr * MW NaBr

    wt fraction = g NaBr/2.01g = ?? (0.049 wt fraction of NaBr)

    Plug and SOLVE
    Or do you need more than this?
