Hi Mary,
The normal distribution is symmetric about the mean. You know this from the bellshaped curve. Your top limit of 131 is 11 points above the mean (131  120 = 11) and your bottom limit 99 is 21 below the mean (120  99 = 21).
It is clear from the diagram that the area under the curve above 131 can't be the same as the area under the curve below 99 and hence there must be an error in your solution.
You need to find the value B of blood pressure so that the area under the curve above B is 10%, that is 0.01.
As in the question you sent us earlier you need to convert this value B to the standard normal distribution using
Z = ^{(X  )}/ _{} = ^{(B  120)}/ _{8}
Using the standard normal table look up the value on the Zaxis that cuts off an area of 0.01 to the right. Set that value equal to ^{(B  120)}/ _{8} and solve for B.
