Puzzle - What are the chances?

Brad works for a packaging company. One day, he received four separate orders and accidently mixed up the addresses, so he applied the address labels at random. What is the probability that exactly three packages were correctly labeled?

He sounds like someone I used to worik with

Sorry, but as has been stated - if 3 are correct, the last one just has to be correct too. That means "exactly" 3 correct will never happen - 0, 1, 2 or 4 correct, but never 3.

Yes, the chances are none, as explained by both vic and dragndrop. Yay eyespy.
