Anatomy Musculocutaneous and radial nerves

I need help about that.. Wat are the roots of both nerves? In Kaplan they mentions that the musculocutaneous nerve origin is c5, 6 and radial is c5-t1 then and 2 pages after they mentions that M.C nerve origin is c5, 6, 7 and radial is c5, 6, 7, 8 !! Can anyone explain what does it mean?

Default According to Netter's Anatomy

According to Netter's
The radial nerve originates from the posterior cord of the brachial plexus with roots from C5, C6, C7, C8 & T1.
The musculocutaneous nerve arises from the lateral cord of the brachial plexus, opposite the lower border of the Pectoralis major, its fibers being derived from C5, C6 and C7.
