NaNO2 is the salt of a strong base (NaOH) and a weak acid (HNO2). The NO2^- is hydrolyzed.
NO2^- + HOH ==> HNO2 + OH^-

Kb = (Kw/Ka) = (HNO2)(OH^-)/(NO2^-)
Set up an ICE chart.
You know Kw. You can calculate Ka from pKa. (HNO2) will be x. (OH^-) will be x. (NO2^-) = 0.262. Solve for x, convert to pOH, then to pH. I found pH = 8.285 which I would round to 8.28 but I would pick the 8.29 for the answer.
