    Hi,

    Would anybody please tell me what the phrasal verb " follow from" means? Does it mean " to come as a logical result of something" or it simply means "go after something or someone"?

    Here is the sentence I've encountered this verb:

    Because each observation on the dependent variable y depends on the random error term e, each y is also a randomvariable. The statistical properties of y follow from those of e
    .

    Re: Follow from

    It's not a phrasal verb. In the context the two words mean, as you suggest, "to come as a logical result".
