Affixes Adds % to lighting damage

Items and Crafting
Blizzard can you please clarify what -Add 7-8% lighting damage means.

I am using a Schaefers's Hammer which adds:
+(146-286)-(334-667) lighting damage to the weapon
add 7-8% lighting damage

So would the 7-8% apply to the base weapon damage or would it included the affix +(146-286)-(334-667). Also, if the weapon has +50% damage would the add % to damage be calculated of the weapon damage before the +50% damage gets added to the weapon?

Also, if the weapon has a socket and i add a ruby it to will this get the additional % from the affix?

Can somebody please explain
