3. You have an unknown quantity of pennies laying on a table.
You're blindfolded and wearing gloves (so you can't feel the pennies face.) 10 of the
pennies are heads up, the remaining all have tails facing up. Your challenge is to divide
the pennies into two groups so that there is an equal number of heads facing up in each
group. You can pick them up, shake them up, do whatever you want just as long as you don't
look at them or feel the face to determine which way the penny is. The two piles don't
need to have an equal number of pennies, just an equal number of heads facing up. How do
you do it? Good Luck!
Answer: Simply pull 10 pennies out of the group and flip them over.
No matter what the pennies were you will now have 2 groups with equal numbers of
heads facing up. Don't believe us? Try it!
