Resumen: It is not always clear that some equations affected by complicated factors can, actually, be interpreted as a ratio of two polynomials of first degree and so that they can be, in general, represented by rectangular hyperbolas. In this paper we present an easy procedure to rearrange those equations into Michaelis-Menten-type equations and so to make the aspects of these rectangular hyperbolas more clear, particularly for researchers familiar with general biochemistry. As an example, the method is applied to transform the classical rate equation of the Cleland's Ordered Uni Bi enzyme mechanism.
