Coin Confusion

You are blindfolded and wearing gloves, on the table in front of you are 100 coins.  90 of the coins are showing heads and 10 of the coins are showing tails.  You are unable distinguish which is which by touch or any other method.

You must separate the coins into two groups with an equal amount of coins in each group showing tails.  How do you accomplish this?

You remove 10 coins and place them in a separate group.  Flip those coins over.  Now both groups will have the same number of coins showing tails.
