I am looking for a guide as to how Mplus calculates 'results in probability scale' having estimated the latent class model. Can you advise?

The formula is

p = 1 / (1 + exp(threshold))

Thank you. And how are the class membership probabilities calculated?

Mplus prints estimates of [c#1 c#2...]; that is the logits corresponding to the intercepts/means of the multinomial regression on covariates (no covs implies that the intercepts are the means). Then use UG Chapter 14 formulas on pages 441-445 to translate from those logits to probabilities.
