Salve! (Salvete! - plural)
i.e. a formal greeting. It depends on your context: for example, in the UK 'How do you do' strictly speaking is not an equivalent of 'How are you?' but rather a formal way of saying hello on a first meeting - and thus should be answered with 'How do you do?' Modern usage has, however, eroded this custom, so that nowadays some people reply to the question as if it meant 'How are you?' (in which case, see previous answer!)
