Why is it dere, not du? Takk

Har du saltet? = Do YOU have the salt? (asking a single person) Har dere saltet? = Do you (guys) have the salt? (asking multiple people, speaking to more than one person)

I'm sure it's both

å ha is the infinitve = to have. The present tense is formed by adding r = du har = you have. Transpose to form a question = har du?

so if i were telling someone to have a good day, or have the car running i would us ha rather than har.

those sound like imperatives: take a look at the second table at https://www.duolingo.com/skill/nb/imperative
