Also depends on how well you feed the tank.  If you feed twice to three times a day of smaller meals everyone is happy all is good.  If not some of those platies may look for a snack - especially the weaker shrimp.

the platies might be just as big as the adult shrimp, when i got rid of platies, i kept ones that were 1in big

I keep shrimp with adult platies, swordtails, guppies, and mollies. The shrimp in my swordtail tank are giant but fewer in number. Whether that’s because the babies are hiding or being predated I’m not sure.

 Interesting to me is that several times I’ve removed all the fish from a tank for whatever reason and immediately (like within an hour) there are dozens of small shrimp when I would’ve sworn that there were only a few adults in the tank. 
just goes to show how well they can hide when they know predators are present.
