Test your skills of deduction with the June 2022 edition of Riddle Me This: Three Coins

Your friend wants to play a game. You are to turn your back as your friend places three coins, a nickel, a dime, and a quarter on a table behind you. He can arrange them in any pattern of heads or tails as long as they are not all the same. You then tell your friend to flip the coins any way you would like. For example, you can say “flip the dime” or “flip all three coins,” etc. Your goal is to get all three coins to be the same, either all heads or all tails. As soon as all three coins are the same, your friend will tell you that you’ve won.

What is the best strategy to use to win the game in the fewest number of steps possible?
