In JavaScript, since floating point is defined with IEEE754,there will be some accuracy issues while doing floating point number arithmetic. Here is a function which can resolve the accuracy issue.

var calc = function(num1,operator,num2,len){
    var numFixs = function(num){
        var arr = num.toFixed(len).toString().split('.');
        return parseInt(arr.join(''));
    }
    switch(operator){
        case '+':
            return ( numFixs(num1) + numFixs(num2) )/ Math.pow(10,len);
        break;
        case '-':
            return ( numFixs(num1) - numFixs(num2) )/ Math.pow(10,len);
        break;
        case '*':
            var tmp = ( numFixs(num1) * numFixs(num2) )/ Math.pow(10,len) / Math.pow(10,len);
            return parseFloat(tmp.toFixed(len));
        break;
        case '/':
        if (num2 == 0) {return 'Error'}
            return ( numFixs(num1) / numFixs(num2) )/ Math.pow(10,len);
        break;
    }
}

//Examples
calc(2.01,'-',2.11 ,2);
calc(2.1,'-',2.111111 ,2);
calc(1,'-',2.111111 ,2);
calc(5,'-',2.111111 ,3);
