A crew of an 8 oar boat has to be selected from 11 people, out of which 5 can oar only on one side, 4 can oar only on the other side and 2 can oar on either sides, find in how many ways can the selection be done?

What I did here is assumed 3 possibilities

1. 7 on one side and 4 on the other---- assuming those two to be on one side

2. 6 on one side and 5 on the other---- equally dividing them on each side

3. 5 on one side and 6 on the other---- equally dividing them on each side
