Endgame 5 and 7

How comes in Endgame question 5, you were able to add the standard cell potentials to get -0.16V but you can't add the standard cell potentials in #7? Shouldn't you not be able to add them in 5 because cell potential isn't a state potential?

You can add them in 5 because they're part of a cathode anode system, but standard Ecell is not a state function in either case.

Thank you!! This was confusing me as well
