A schematic method for the derivation of steady-state enzyme rate equations by using the Wang algebra is described. The method is simple, easy to learn and offers a substantial decrease in analytical effort over previously published algorithms. Being essentially an algebraic procedure the method can be readily computerized. Computer programs in BASIC and ALGOL languages have been deposited as Supplementary Publication SUP 50065 (19 pages) at the British Library (Lending Division), Boston Spa, Wetherby, W. Yorkshire LS23 7BQ, U.K., from whom copies can be obtained on the terms indicated in Biochem. J. (1976). 153, 5.
