I think it is more like everything gets added together to come up with your final numbers. I don't know the exact details of how the calculations work.

Also, defense and resistance are 2 different things. Defense is how likely you are to be hit by something. The higher your defense, the more likely the shot will miss you. The counter to defense is Accuracy. The higher your accuracy, the more likely your shot will hit something and not miss. Resistance deals with how much damage something does to you if it were to hit you. The higher your resist is to a particular type of damage, the less damage you will take from it when it hits you.
