Overhead Analysis

Hi, This may sound like a very stupid question, but I have been working my way through the C01 Study text and are a little bit baffled by something I have come across. Any suggestions or explanations much appreciated- On p76 a formula is provided for apportioned costs which is: Total Overhead Cost/Total value of Cost Apportionment base x Value of apportionment base of the cost centre being                                                                                                       calculated We are told that the total overhead cost we are working with is the depreciation apportioned to the machining cost centre and is $16,700. I am fine with that but, the total value of apportionment is said to be $1,670,000.  How is this worked out? I have looked through the example and cannot get to this total. Please could someone tell me how this figure is worked out?

Perpetuity Formula

How does the Perpetuity formula work? I don't seem to understand it. For example if X has a  choice of receiving $5,000 now or an annual amount forever and assume interest rate is 8%.What would be the annual perpetuity in $? Whats the answer can anyone help?
