**Combinations of groups question [edited question]**

The camera club has 5 members and the mathematics club has 8. There is only one member common to both clubs. In how many ways could a committee of four people be formed with at least one member from each club?

I am confused about the "one member common to both clubs" part and that the committee needs to have at least one member from each group. So when calculating do you do it as 5 members in camera club or 4 members since there's one person in both clubs?
