Hanging interior solid pine doors

I am replacing all my interior bedroom doors which are currently the light hollow doors which probably weight 20-30 pounds at most. I have bought solid pine doors (just the door NO jamb) and these weight alot more (75 pounds??). My question is:

Can I get away with 2 hinges per door if I go with longer screws. Or do I need to put 3 hinges per door. Is there any fancy formula out there for door weight vs. size.

Thanks for any help.

To avoid problems later on, go with 3 hinges.
