Definition of standard error=(standard deviation)/sqrt(sample size)

=25/sqrt(50)=25/5sqrt(2)=5/sqrt(2) or 5sqrt(2)/2=3.5355 approx. This is the deviation of the sample mean from the population mean of 120.

Relative standard error=5sqrt(2)/240=2.95% (standard error/mean expressed as a percentage).
