"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?
