If i have 3200 candies and i randomly distribute it 12 people
then what is the probability that one of them will get none of the candy.

My calculation give me the chance of 0.028% probability
that one will not get any candy.

Can someone verify this or if I am wrong give me the correct explanation.

Thank You

Do you mean "exactly one will get no candy" or "at least one will get no candy"?

If you want someone to verify your calculation, please show us what calculation you did!

I mean at least one indivisual out of the 12 will not get any candy.
