  1. You don't give enough information to know if you want the Eocell for a spontaneous or non-spontaneous cell. I assume you want the spontaneous reaction.
    Al(s) ==> Al^3+ + 3e Eo = +1.66
    Fe^2+ + 2e ==> Fe(s) Eo = -0.440
    --------------------
    2Al + 3Fe^2+ ==> 2Al^3+ + 3Fe
    Add Eo values to find Eocell.
