# Problem #2132

 2132 Square $ABCD$ has side length $2$. A semicircle with diameter $\overline{AB}$ is constructed inside the square, and the tangent to the semicircle from $C$ intersects side $\overline{AD}$ at $E$. What is the length of $\overline{CE}$? $[asy] defaultpen(linewidth(0.8)); pair A=origin, B=(1,0), C=(1,1), D=(0,1), X=tangent(C, (0.5,0), 0.5, 1), F=C+2*dir(C--X), E=intersectionpoint(C--F, A--D); draw(C--D--A--B--C--E); draw(Arc((0.5,0), 0.5, 0, 180)); pair point=(0.5,0.5); label("A", A, dir(point--A)); label("B", B, dir(point--B)); label("C", C, dir(point--C)); label("D", D, dir(point--D)); label("E", E, dir(point--E)); [/asy]$ $\mathrm{(A) \ } \frac{2+\sqrt{5}}{2} \qquad \mathrm{(B) \ } \sqrt{5} \qquad \mathrm{(C) \ } \sqrt{6} \qquad \mathrm{(D) \ } \frac{5}{2} \qquad \mathrm{(E) \ } 5-\sqrt{5}$ This problem is copyrighted by the American Mathematics Competitions.
