No, because you haven't answered the question fully. You've been asked to find the first term

*a*but you found the common difference*d*.

Your working seems fine though. Simply sub your value of d into one of your original equations to find a.

(eq1)

(eq2)

Rearrange eq1:

(eq3)

sub eq3 into eq2
