Mike is correct on the math, but I’ll suggest a slight variation to fitting these doors that will help account for any accumulation of errors in the build of the carcass and doors. If you make the doors slightly wide, you can sneak up on the gap by taking light cuts with a jointer or hand plane and fit the gap. By doing it this way, you can correct for any minor errors in the sizes of the parts and mounting of the hinges that accumulated in the build.
