1) addition and subtraction is supported?

2) the part about dividing by to is actually to test to see if they know what is
going on in bit vectors. Circle uses a lot of them, and I use more.

It's a very bad idea to use the method I know you're thinking of. It's
not standard ANSI C, and isn't supported by a lot of the compilers that
Circle is portable to.

Why would you bother, when it takes away from the readability and
sense of the code and just about any compiler out there optimises
it anyway?
