Hapaha: I see it as meaning Half of Half, or a quarter. That may not be its origin, but it makes the word easier to remember.

I see it as hapa (part) ha (eha 4) = one of 4 parts. Hapakolu would be 1/3.

Marked wrong for "Ten fifteen"?

Itʻs the difference linguistically between a quarter hour and fifteen minutes. Analog vs digital. :-)

Marked incorrect for: "Fifteen minutes past ten." ...
