if you end up with an odd number that is only because
you doubled the ten and not the five.

The method is easy. Since you would triple the
value of the coin in your right hand the value would be 30 if the
dime is in the right. Then you double the value of the coin in your
left hand and the nickle is in the left the value would be 10. If
you add the values together you would get 40. 40 is an even number
so the would therefore be in your right hand. If the nickle is in
your right hand you would triple that and you would get 15. Then the
dime would be doubled because the dime is in your left this time.
The value would be 20. If you add the numbers together, you would
get 35. Since 35 is an odd number the dime would therefore be in your
left hand..

Two times the dime or nickel in the left hand always
results in an even and hence it result is irrelevent. 3 times the
coin in the right hand helps to make up the decision. so if the sum
is even, dime is in the right hand else if odd, it is in left hand..

All you have to do is pay attention to the multiplacation
of the nickle because any whole number that you multiply by ten is
always going to equal to an even number. If the nickle is in the right
hand the sum is odd because your friend would have to multiply five
times three and that equals fifteen. However if the nickle is in the
left the sum is even because your friend would have to multiply five
times two and that equals ten.
