The expression "Give sb a hand" Hi! I know that one of the meaning "give sb a hand" means to help sb.I just watched a cartoon and heard about another meaning -"to clap to sb". I wonder, is this meaning used frequently?

The other meaning you are looking for is to 'applaud'. Game show presenter says" Thank you for playing! Everybody, lets give him a (big) hand!"

Hi Nazar, is 'Sb' someone's name? You might say, "[I will] give Sb a hand" or ask someone to "go and give Sb a hand", but I don't think I have ever heard anyone use the other expression.
