(possible question) ʻEhia kaikamahine nuha ma ka pā pāʻani? = How many stubborn girls are on the playground?
Aia hoʻokahi kaikamahine nuha ma ka pā pāʻani. = There is one stubborn girl on the playground.
I had it 100% as above & it was in correct
I tried a word ' 'ekahi ', it wasn't correct. I need to feel the difference between those two designations of 'number one'. Could anybody help me with this issue?
ʻekahi is the numeral or a count number (1, 2, 3...)
hoʻokahi is an amount number that tells how many of something (1 girl)
Other amount numbers:
ʻaʻohe (instead of ʻole), and he + 10-99 for all two-digit numbers
A recent sentence "There are ten black dogs on the playground" did not require "aia" although it was listed as another correct translation. This sentence requires "aia". I donʻt understand the difference.
