    For #1, this is a hydrolysis question.
    NO2^- + HOH ==> HNO2 + OH^-

    Kb = (Kw/Ka) = (HNO2)(OH^-)/(NO2^-)
    Make an ICE chart and substitute into the Kb equation. I'm unsure of why you included the pKa for HCN. The pKa you want is HNO2.

    For #2, ionize HCN.
    HCN ==> H^+ + CN^-
    Ka = (H^+)(CN^-)/(HCN)
    Set up an ICE chart, substitute into the Ka expression above and solve for H^+, then convert to pH.

    Post your work if you get stuck.
