You calculate the statistical probability of dying in a plane crash in the same way that you calculate the probability of anything else. You simply divide the number of expected outcomes by the number of possible outcomes.

To determine the statistical probability of dying in a plane crash, you divide the number of people that have died in a plane crash by the number of people that have flown in planes. You can aggregate this anyway you want, over whatever period of time you want, so long as you properly state the conditions under which you perform your calculation.

It is a 1 in 9.8 million chance of dying in a car crash.

The probability is 1. It is a certainty that we will all die.

Sooner or later you'll die, so the probability of dying is 100%.

The question is ambiguous. Does it seek the probability thatsome random person in the world dies in an avalanche, orsomeone who is caught in an avalanche dying rather than surviving, orthe cause of a someone dying is an avalanche rather than something else?

It is not known. Only four storm chasers have ever been killed by a tornado, and all of them were killed in the same event in 2013. One fatal event does not provide enough datato calculate the probability of dying, though it does appear that the chance is very small.

A probability of 1 simply means that the event will absolutely occur. For instance, the probability of dying is 1, (unless you directly ascend into heaven, but that's off topic), the probability of rolling a standard pair of dice and getting a sum less than 13 is 1, the probability that the Sun will set tonight is 1, etc.

I could not find the odds of an airplane crashing, but I did find this: Your chances of dying in an airliner accident are about 8 million to 1. Another way to say that is, if you boarded any airliner, at random, once a day, every day, the statistical time before you were killed in an airplane crash would be 21,000 years.

when you have been decapitated i am pretty sure you would die. its not even really that practical to get a probability in the first place because it has been clear since ancient times that without the head the body does not live

They would crash their planes into buildings, ships, or other planes to take them down [dying in the process] =[

Depends on how bad of crash it is. So I would say you have a 50-50 chance of living or dying.

I suggest riding a motorcycle. Nicotine itself is addictive but not particularly harmful to health. It is the tar and and other substances in tobacco smoke that causes fatal diseases.

The frequency approach or experimental probability involves the estimation of the probability of an outcome as the proportion of "successful" outcomes in repeated trials. I put "successful" in quotes because in epidemiology, a "successful" outcome is often a person catching a disease or infection and possibly dying as a result. I am not sure if anyone would consider that a success!

Dying doesn't usually feel painful.If you get killed in an accident, for example: car crash, then it will usually not hurt because you die so quickly.If you die because you have been sick, then the medicine usually takes away most of the pain.
