Exactly. You could think of 'vulnerabilities' instead of resistances. You start with a vulnerability of 100% (normal) and then find an item of vulnerability 60% and one of vulnerability 80% and then your vulnerability is only 48% (meaning you only take 48% of normal damage). Immunity is 0% vulnerability. In the FA system the vulnerabilities multiply or, equivalently, the resistances co-multiply.
