The standard mathematical operators `/' and `*' do not use full 32-bit values in their calculations, as noted previously (see 11.3.4 Maths and logic functions). A common problem is to forget this and use them where the values will exceed the 16-bit limit. A typical example is the position calculations used with proportional gadgets. See A.8 Signed and Unsigned Values.
