You just need for them to be worked 'evenly' approx 1/3 of the way or about 30-31 sts. You probably want to work them over P2 (p2tog) or K2 (k2tog) vs working the dec over a K and P.

Keeping to the knitting basics

If you're switching to stockinette after the ribbing, you can also do the decs on the first row of that k2tog or p2tog about 1/3 and 2/3 along the row.
