Reiny,
you will need a normal distribution table or chart.
I use this online applet

Use the second part at the bottom of the page
for mean enter 29000
for Sd enter 4000
in 'shaded' area, enter .16 and click on "above"
or
in 'shaded' area enter .84 and click on "below"
in either case you get
$32977.83 or $32978 to the nearest dollar
