Other competing sellers in the same region charge an average of $250 for a set of goggles and $750 for the lessons, if sold separately. Beaumont Company usually sells at a 5% discount compared to other shops, since it is a bit farther away from the ocean.

Typically, if Beaumont were to sell the equipment only, it would ask for $2,000. Required: Assuming that the diving equipment and the certification lessons are separate performance obligations, estimate the stand-alone selling price of the lessons based on the residual approach.  Show computations.
