Default PV of Perp Due with tricky interest rates

They say the perpetuity due with annual payments of 15,000 where i = .1 for the 1st 10 years and .08 thereafter can be found using the attached formula.

I tried 15,000(a(umlauts)10,.1 + (1/.08)v^10), but this did not yield the correct answer of 179,457.87

Can anyone explain why my method didn't work.
Also looking to understand the formula they used, it isn't registering with me as something that makes sense.

Thanks a ton! I test the 18th.

The second term in your brackets should be 1.08/0.08 * v^10, where v uses 10%. The 1.08 adjusts for beginning of period payments.

And the listed formula is adding a perpetuity immediate to the payment of $15,000 at time 0. The perpetuity immediate uses 10% throughout, but adds in the difference between 8% and 10%, all discounted for 10 years at 10%.
