Why do I need to be explicit about binary

Hi,

Can anyone explain why 11> does not work but 12> does?
A is assigned a binary value, so why do I need to be explicit about it.

10> A = <<2:8>>.
<<2>>
11> B = <<1:8, A, 3:8>>.
** exited: {badarg,[{erl_eval,expr,3}]} **
12> B = <<1:8, A/binary, 3:8>>.
<<1,2,3>>


Best Regards
Zeke
