120 by 80 is the normal BP of a person.......; but, along with age it increases a bit and in today's stressful world, 140 by by 90 is considered normal for an adult....; also at the same time, u cannot come to a conclusion abt ur BP with one single reading....., BP shd be checked over a period of at least one or two weeks and if it gives the same result...., that is supoosed to be the conclusive BP of a person..........; moreover...., a person's BP varies with th timings of the day and the activities he is involved in at the time of measuring the BP..........

120/80 is ideal, diastolic at 80 is good, but a lot depends on age too.
