Or the official Shimano way is big big + 2 complete links for short cage mechs, + 3 complete for long mechs. ( a complete link is the narrow and wide link paired if you see what I mean)

Or if you run 11-28 and 26-36-46 then just take 6 links off a new chain and it will fit.

Largest chainring, smallest sprocket the two jockey wheels should be inline vertically. If theres big jumps in the cassette, a full sus frame or your not sure run it on the longer side of the equation :)
