1,271.8K Views

There are twenty coins sitting on the table, ten are currently heads and tens are currently tails. You are sitting at the table with a blindfold and gloves on. You are able to feel where the coins are, but are unable to see or feel if they heads or tails. You must create two sets of coins. Each set must have the same number of heads and tails as the other group. You can only move or flip the coins, you are unable to determine their current state. How do you create two even groups of coins with the same number of heads and tails in each group?

Create two sets of ten coins. Flip the coins in one of the sets over, and leave the coins in the other set alone. The first set of ten coins will have the same number of heads and tails as the other set of ten coins.
