Assunto:  Hello, it´s my first access/posting.
 
Mensagem: 

"How do you do?" is not the same as "How are you?"  It's only used when meeting someone, being introduced to someone.  It's very formal. 

 

Although "How are you?" requires a response in statement form followed by a question regarding the other person's health or state of being ("I am fine, thank you.  And you?/Are you having a good tiem?"), it's common to answer "How do you do?" with the same question ("How do you do?").
