So I'm reading the wiki about Adaptation, because its not working like I thought it did at face value. It says that Adaptations damage reduction stacks with other damage reduction multiplicatively.

So please correct me if I'm mistaken, but because damage resistance stacks multiplicatively, that would mean that even if Adaptation maxes at 90% damage reduction, having another source of damage reduction such as say Gauss's kinetic plating would actually lower the total possible damage resistance? So lets assume Gauss's battery is at enough charge to give Gauss 90% damage reduction, and Adaptation is maxed at 90% for whatever the incoming damage type is. So the math would be .90 x .90 for a total of .81, or 81% damage resistance?
