regarding poisson, how would you go about solving if a question reads:

A hospital has noted that they admit an average of 8 patients per hour. What is the probability that during the next hour exactly 0 patients will be admitted?

f(0)=8^0 e^-8/0!
=error: divide by 0

I am told the answer is supposed to be .000335? If that is so, how? because nothing can be divided by 0....
