jquery formating decimal places problem

I'm using variables of prices and when using one on its own the formatting (decimal places) is fine like when I set the variable: var unitcore = (1*(unitcost)).toFixed(2);

but when I try and do a calculation I just can't get the formating back: trying this doesn't work: $("#tblunit").html(unitcore - disc).toFixed(2); and without the Fixed (2) doesn't work either.

Any ideas please clever people?

In my opinion, it's "better" to do all your calculations without regard to formatting, then, change the result as you like.

So, this has always been a safer approach for me:

var result = unitcore - disc;
result = result.toFixed(2);
