E hoihoi kāua i ke kī should be accepted since they did not specify how many people they are referring to.

Would this be correct? "E hoʻihoʻi kākou i ke kī.":

  • E - To
  • Hoʻihoʻi - Return / Put back
  • Kākou - Everyone / All of us
  • I - In / At / On (Location of)
  • Ke - The
  • Kī - Key

So "E hoʻihoʻi kākou i ke kī" would be literally translated as "To return, all of us, (location) at, the key" - which is then simply "Let's return the key."

Hope that helps and makes sense :-)
