Do simple reliable math calculations without the risk of wrong results using bcmath
<?php
/**
* Do simple reliable floating point calculations without the risk of wrong results.
*
* @see http://floating-point-gui.de/
* @see the big red warning on http://php.net/language.types.float.php
*
* In the rare case that the bcmath extension would not be loaded, it will return the
* normal calculation results.
*
* @see Source: https://gist.github.com/jrfnl/8449978
*
* @param mixed $number1 Scalar (string/int/float/bool).
* @param string $action Calculation action to execute. Valid input:
* '+' or 'add' or 'addition',
* '-' or 'sub' or 'subtract',
* '*' or 'mul' or 'multiply',
* '/' or 'div' or 'divide',
* '%' or 'mod' or 'modulus',
* '=' or 'comp' or 'compare'.
* @param mixed $number2 Scalar (string/int/float/bool).
* @param bool $round Whether or not to round the result. Defaults to false.
* Will be disregarded for a compare operation.
* @param int $decimals Decimals for rounding operation. Defaults to 0.
* @param int $precision Calculation precision. Defaults to 10.
*
* @return int|float|false Calculation result or false if either of the numbers isn't scalar or
* an invalid operation was passed.
* - for compare the result will always be an integer.
* - for all other operations, the result will either be an integer (preferred)
* or a float.
