When you double the equation why does the G increase the E stay the same?

E is an intensive property so it doesn’t depend on the amount of substances involved so multiplying the reaction equation does not multiply E

When using the equation delta g = -nFe, e cell doesn't change and G does because of the n which is number of electrons transferred. Doubling the equation means increasing the number of electrons changing the value of G.
