We are given an assignment, and my foreigner seatmate helped me to answer one question and he added "I hope it helps"

I am not sure what to respond, out of my to speak in English I responded thank you, need any help on how to respond to these.

    A simple "thank you" is sufficient. – Mick Jan 11 '17 at 15:25

    Would you like to know how to better word your question? It is perfectly understandable, however, it is not correct English. You are doing so well with your studies that I would like to help. This is not meant to be unkind in any way. – WRX Jan 11 '17 at 16:14

    This is too open-ended, plus it's more about manners than learning English. You might just give your friend a winning smile, for example. – FumbleFingers Jan 11 '17 at 18:40

You could also use these answers:

I am sure it will


I hope so too

"Thank you" is totally acceptable

    I hope so too is rather a brusque answer that I wouldn't recommend for the type of dialog explained in the OP. – AmE speaker Jan 12 '17 at 3:12

    I thought he asked for answers for a more general context I agree that it rather a brusque answer when you're talking to a seatmate – Lorenzo B. Jan 13 '17 at 15:52
