Basically if my bow does an average of 70-100 damage per hit, would i do 71-101 damage per hit if i add a +1 Attack Manastone? And would increasing my bow to +10 (+40 Attack) increase my damage to 110-140 per hit?

Longer answer: The +attack to mana stones increases your bonus damage (the green +attack number) and any skills that modify attack power (like +40% to atk power) will not affect the bonus to attack given by mana stones.
The +attack that comes from weapon enchant increases the white +attack number and is affected by skills that modify attack power. If you have +40 dmg to your bow and use devotion which is +40% attack then you will get an additional 16 attack power because it applies to your enchant. Your passive weapon training skill also grants a bonus to your enchant. So you might enchant a sword with +20 damage and actually see a net +25 attack gain due to the passive skill.
So in short, +40 atk from enchanting > +40 atk from mana stones.

Another way to put it is, if i fired 500 arrows and got an average damage of 80, would my average damage be 100 if i added +20 attack manastones?
