How are the following shield resistances handled?

That *looks* correct, but it's been awhile since I've dug up the formulae for shield resists.
That being said, based on your operating assumptions (IE: multiplicative instead of additive stacking, and zero shield power based resists) the equation as intended will get you to a 34.1 % shield resist number.
Though upon further review I believe you are missing a set of parenthesees around the entire resistance portion.
I believe it should be:
To contain all the resistances into a single multiplicative operation. Elsewise you get a .7752 number that doesn't really jive with anything (too high to be a resist, and too low to make sense given the additive stacking value of 40%).
Hope that was in some way helpful.
EDIT: Just for kicks I ran the equation as though the ADAPT was a single resist number. At 10 stacks it works out to a 35.4% resist (assuming a 20% resist "chunk" as opposed to single modifiers). Only a 1.3% difference.
