Homework Help: Chemistry

Tarnish on iron is the compound FeO. A tarnished iron plate is placed in an aluminum pan of boiling water. When enough salt is added so that the solution conducts electricity, the tarnish disappears.

Imagine that the two halves of this redox reaction were separated and connected with a wire and a salt bridge.

Calculate the standard cell potential given the following standard reduction potentials:
Al3++3e−→Al;E∘=−1.66 V
Fe2++2e−→Fe;E∘=−0.440 V

I thought it was 2.1 V but i am wrong...
