How much should ridge cap cover the shingle


The shingles I have only have only overlap by 1/2" over the nail line. I was wondering how far a ridge cap should cover the nail line or how far should it cross over the ridge. At the ridge, I have been cutting one side of the shingle even with the ridge. The other side just overlaps the ridge. I was wondering how far the minimum overlap should be.
