Solid Rock + Light Screen?

How much protection would solid rock and light screen together provide Rhyperior or Camerupt against a move like surf?

Solid Rock reduces damage from super effective moves by 1/4. Since Rhyperior and Camerupt both have a double weakness to surf, it would only do 3x damage. Since Light Screen and Reflect double Special Defence and physical Defence respectively, it would halve the damage, therefore the equivalent to 1.5x damage from Surf instead of 4x.
