High low method is the three-step method of separating costs into fixed and variable elements: first, the low figure is deducted from the high figure of each unit; then, the change in wage costs is divided by the change in units sold; finally, the variable cost per unit answer is used to calculate the fixed cost element. Also known as the maximum minimum method.
