How do bonuses interact with each other?

I am newish to the game and i have a question.
How do bonuses interact with each other?
Let me elaborate what i mean:
I am flying a praxis that has 50% drones damage.
I have the heavy drones skill lvl 3 and it gives 15% bonus to heavy drones damage.
I have drone interfacing lvl 2 so another 20% to damage.
Now if i fit my praxis with an heavy drone, what will be the damage output?
Do they sum to 85% or is it like normal damage + ship bonus + skill bonus calculated on that?

It’s multiplicative. Always, if your ship does 100 drone dps with current skills/mods, and you add a module that adds 5% drone damage, it’ll now do 105 dps.

base damage * 1.5 * 1.15 * 1.2 = base damage * 2.07, so you get a 107% damage increase compared to an unskilled, unbonussed hull.

One caveat is that modules and rigs have diminishing returns, their effectiveness starts to really drop after the 3rd item.

These might help understand a bit better.

Okay, so they are cumulative.
So for example 3 mining upgrades II don’t give a total of 27% but they give a 29.5% plus mining level 5 is 61%.
Got it, thanks to everyone
