Also, unlike in Hess' law where you could multiply the enthalpy values by the same coefficient that you multiplied the entire reaction by, you can't use the same strategy with cell potential. Standard reduction potential gives the voltage difference between two standard electrodes which is always the same. E* is an intensive property so it does not depend on the number of times the reaction occurs.
Since E is not a state function you can't apply the same concepts that we used in Hess's Law. E is an intensive property too so no matter how many times the reaction occurs the E will not change.
