Power...Did I do this right??

1. Homework Statement
Two 97 W (114 V) lightbulbs are wired in series, then the combination is connected to a 114 V supply. How much power is dissipated by each bulb?


2. Homework Equations
P = VI
I = E/Req

3. The Attempt at a Solution
I = 114/228 =0.5
P = 0.5 * 114 = 57
Is this right?
