Hanging Doors

I am planning to install a 36" prehung door in my basement. I wanted to know the minimum width the framed opening needs to be. Thanks in advance.

General rule is 2" wider and 2" higher than the door size. You will have to shim a little, but allowing that much will also let you correct its position if the opening is not exactly square.
