    you will need a normal distribution table or chart.
    I use this online applet
    http://davidmlane.com/hyperstat/z_table.html

    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
