"1. 37 (Reverse each two-digit number on the left of the equation. If prime, OK; if not, write the next prime number. For example, 19 reversed, 91, is not prime, so the next prime number is 97. Similarly, since 23 reversed, 32, is not prime, the next prime number is 37).

2. supercilious"

Supercilious is pronounced the same as 'super silly-ous', thus the clue that it is "not something or someone that is extremely funny."
