Derive first law of newton from second law of motion

1st Law states that an object will continue without a change in motion (constant velocity) if there are no outside forces.

2nd Law states that to have an accn, there must be an outside force.

If F = 0

F=ma becomes 

And if there is no acceleration, there is no change in motion (1st law).
