Solution

Case 1: Taking 2 piles of Coins
  • Pile 1 = P1
  • Pile 2 = P2
            
           P1 = HTTTT
           P2 = HHHHT

We have make both pile with equal no. of heads

Now determining the number of Heads in both the Piles

  • P1 = 1 Head
  • P2 = 4 Heads
            
           P1 = HTTTT
           P2 = HHHHT

We have make both pile with equal no. of heads

After Flipping Pile 1

Number of Heads now in Pile 1,

  • P1 = 4 Head

Number of Heads in Pile  2,

  • P2 = 4 Heads
            
           P1 = THHHH
P2 = HHHHT

After Flipping Pile 1

Conclusion:

Number of Heads now in Pile 1,

  • P1 = 4 Head

Number of Heads in Pile  2,

  • P2 = 4 Heads

Number of Heads in Pile 1 is equal to no. of heads in Pile 2

            
           P1 = THHHH

           P2 = HHHHT

P1 = P2 = 4 Heads
