"How is the score?"
Translation:Pehea ka helu ʻai?
I'm not familiar with this expression. " 'How' is the score" seems to require the response "Just fine thank you." A quality ("fine," or"junk!"), not a number (10 - 7). Is this a common phrase in Hawaiian? I'd have expected something like "He aha ka helu 'ai." No? Can someone explain this phrasing to me please?
And!! - an earlier exercise in this same lesson was,
"What is the score of the game?" Translation:ʻEhia ka helu ʻai o ka hoʻokūkū?
So, remembering this weird thing about "how" from the last time through this lesson, I used "pehea" on that exercuse (and got it wrong :( ).
I'm confused :(. (Just saying "how" (which as noted sounds stilted in English) doesn't help because I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be learning here?)
