Given a blockchain network of n nodes, where m of them are miners (m < n), what is the impact of m on the probability of having forks in Bitcoin or any PoW-based blockchain?

It is clear for me that a network with fewer miners will have less probability of having forks than a network with a higher number of miners.

Is there any mathematical formula that shows this relation?
