Physics please help!!

Piston 1 has a diameter of 0.524cm Piston 2 has a diameter of 5.64 cm. In the absence of friction, determine the force required on piston 1 necessary to support an object, m, with weight 1072 N. (Neglect the height difference between the bottom of the two pistons, and assume that the pistons are massless)
The pressure is the same.
figure the area of each (area=PI (diameter/2)^2)
Is the 1072N=F2?
I think I did this right but the answer comes up wrong when I submit it
