Why people answer how do you do?
"How do you do" is a pleasantry that used to be more common than it is currently. The general progression leading up to this phrase was usually something like: "Hello, Mr. Jones." "Hello, Ms. Smith, how do you do?" or when introducing someone, "Mr. Brain, I'd like you to meet Ms. Smith" "How do you do, Ms. Smith?" Something like this. These are just social niceties, really. The person may not genuinely want to know how the person is doing, but the phrase is repeated in a polite manner nonetheless.

The most famous instance of this phrase is probably from Lincoln's address at Gettysburg.
Gettysburg Address by President Abraham Lincoln: Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicate…d to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us-that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion-that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people , shall not perish from the earth.

"...of the people, by the people, and for the people..." is a section taken from the Gettysburg Address given by President Abraham Lincoln on November 19, 1863, at Gettysburg,… Pennsylvania.
