Answer:

Total salary: #color(green)(1750" Rs")#

Explanation:

Assuming
#color(white)("XXX")"Savings" = "Salary" - ("Clothing"+"Food")#

#"Fraction of Salary in Savings"=1 -(2/7+3/7) = 1-5/7=2/7#

#"Savings" = 2/7 xx "Salary"#

#500" Rs" = 2/7 xx "Salary"#

#"Salary" = 7/2 xx 500 " Rs" = 1750 " Rs"#
