In extensions of the gauge group rank of the Standard Model (SM), one wishes to ascribe an additional charge under the additional $u(1)$ subgroup to the chiral fermions. Such charges are constrained by anomaly cancellation conditions. We consider models with SM fermions plus SM singlets (which could play the role of right-handed neutrinos, for example). We discuss methods of solution of the anomaly cancellation conditions using geometric methods, arriving at an analytic solution for SM chiral fermion charges.
