Gerardo - the elderly man?

If you are also an elderly man? Can you use "¿Cómo estás?" when greeting Gerardo?

Hola William,

It is slightly more common that two elderly people say to each other ¿cómo está? but this varies a bit depending on area, how well people know each other, whether the person prefers a more formal or informal approach... The content and examples in the lesson are reflecting what is more commonly used. However, I added an extra hint to that specific question about "Gerardo" saying that it is "a formal greeting" so it is more clear what we are asking for. 

I hope this helps
