How is the health that is restored from leftovers calculated?

if a Dragonite with Life Orb could only manage one Dragon Dance, the overall boost would be x1.95, but if a Dragonite with Leftovers managed to get two Dragon Dances courtesy of the additional HP, the overall boost would be x2, on top of the 6.25% health gained per turn.

When using Leftovers, it is often advised to make your HP divisible by 16, +1. This will allow for a "magic" Leftovers number (a number divisible by 16), while the +1 allows essentially for a "free" hit point due to the floor function in the damage formula.-Smogon

it restores 1/16 or 6.25 % of your max health each turn but it is rounded down always

So the more HP my pokemon has the more it heals?
yes so if your pokemon has 16 hp it would heal 1 hp each turn but if it has 32 it will heal 2 each turn
