Algebra-Please check

We're learning arithmetic sequences-please check this for me-it's my first day calcuulating htese and I'm not sure

If t(1) = 5 and t(n) = t(n-1) + 2, find the first 4 terms of the sequence


I think it would be 5,7,9,11 because the difference is 2 so I just added 2 to each of the previous numbers to get my answer
