according to or depending on?
I would like to ask whether the following statement is correct or not.
The next procedure is decided according to the probability p.
More questions are:
Can I replace "according to" by "depending on" or "with"?
I can understand all of them have roughly same meaning, but I do not have confidentce for these usege since I am not a native.
The subsequent event was omitted, but my answer would be contingent on that event:
"according to" would mean that a procedure would always follow and which procedure you used would be based on the subsequent "probability" event.
"depending on" would mean that a procedure might or might not occur based in the contingency of the subsequent "probability" event happening.
If the event does not occur, then the procedure is not followed.
