Γειά σας, τι κάνετε; / Γειά σας, πώς είστε; OR Γειά σου, τι κάνεις; / Γειά σου, πώς είσαι;


Explanation:
1. Γειά σας = Hello, in polite form (second person plural, also used for people we don't know well or who are elderly)
Τι κάνετε; = How are you doing? (Polite, as above)
Πώς είστε;= How are you? (polite, as above)
2. Γειά σου, τι κάνεις; / Γειά σου, πώς είσαι;
Γειά σου = Hello, second person singular, between friends.
τι κάνεις; = how are you? , second person singular .
πώς είσαι; = How are you? , second person singular .
If you chose this form (i.e. between friends, informal), you can also say, "Γειά, τι γίνεται;", which is the colloquial way to ask this question (literally, "Hello, how's it going?"

Hope this helps
