Please, someone help me, I think that I'm overthinking this issue, but, I may not be. Thank you!
1st) Welcome! To GURPS & the site.
2nd) Yes. You are correct in your formula.
3rd) You should also be aware that you can get a +1 to parry from retreating (available once per turn) and/or you can get a +2 to any defense by using 1 FP (see extra effort). I don't have my books with me but they are worth looking up.
