Please give the solution to the following problem: -

An 8 oared boat is to be manned by a crew chosen from 11 men, of whom 3 can steer but cannot row, and the rest can row but cannot steer. In how many ways can the crew be arranged, if 2 of the men can only row on bow side?

I don't understand the last part of this question "if 2 of the men can only row on bow side". This implies that there is a restriction as to the number of men on the stern/bow sides? If yes, some information is missing here.

I can't make sense out of the last part. Also what is the difference between row and steer. Any explainations welcome.

there can be many rowers but only one person steering (controlling the direction of the boat). However, the last part does not make sense to me
