Cell potentials

In what cases are we allowed to add the cell potentials vs not allowed to?

Whenever the half reactions have different numbers of electrons that do not cancel out with each other, you have to convert the cell potentials into free energy instead of adding them. In the 7th edition textbook, this is explained on page 558 of topic 6M
