1. Normal distribution table give μ+2.33σ as the 99% level.
Calculate the warranty period accordingly.

Tell me which brand it is that has 40 years mean life! :)

2. Try z-scores:

z = (x - mean)/sd

2.33 = (x - 40)/1

Solve for x.

Note: 2.33 represents the z-score corresponding to the 1% in your problem.
