"One dollar and ninety-nine cents for the candy."
Translation:Hoʻokahi kālā me kanaiwakūmamāiwa keneka no ke kanakē.
The word me actually means with and a me literally means and with but meaning and. You would use the word a to connect two verbs or adjectives with and
nani a hanohano
'ai a inu.
With two nouns it needs to be a me - ke keiki a me ke kupuna
Because these are numbers, they are just using the word me by itself.
I saw in an other sentence He at the begining, something like He 'umi kala ka pila, the bill is ten dollar. Why not He hoʻokahi kālā me kanaiwakūmamāiwa keneka no ke kanakē then?
And what's the difference between ka pila and ke kaki? I don't catch the difference. Mahalo nui no ke kōkua!
