Tu le cuentas = you tell him ?

Would someone explain, please? Is this an alternate use for cuenta? Are there other examples?

Alternative? Verb "contar" means both - to count to tell.

Tú le cuentas (a él/ella/...) algo. - You tell him/her/... something.

Think of the English verb 'to recount', if you want a cognate to help you remember it.
