Flat penetration is calculated in before percent calculation. For instance, if the enemy had 100 magic resistance, and you had 20 and 15% magic penetration, first the computer would subtract 20 magic resistance in the calculation, making it 80, then subtract 15% of that. So it would be equivalent to if the enemy had 68 resistance
If your thinking that the order doesn't matter, then let me show you. If they take out the 15% first, that'd make it 85 resistance, then subtract the 20 flat magic resistance, so that'd be equivalent to if the enemy had 65 magic resistance.

Still go with both. % works best for tanks, flat for squishies.
