Sometimes these things take a while to sink in. I think I know what they want now.

As you're binding off the first 43 stitches, you also decrease 8 stitches as you're doing this.

Then, on the next 76 stitches, you decrease 15 stitches evenly across.

Then you decrease 8 stitches as you bind off the last 43 stitches.

Then Purl 1 row ( I think that's the one you thought was missing)

You're decreasing as you bind off to tighten up the top edge.

Does this make sense?

I would knit two together to do the decreases and then incorporate these in the bind off.
