(a)  Yes. m∠ACB  =  m∠ECD since they are vertical angles, and  m∠ABC  =  m∠CDE . So by the AA congruency postulate,  △ABC ~ △EDC  .

 

(b)  Since  △ABC ~ △EDC  ....

 

DE / DC   =   BA / BC

 32 / 22    =   BA / 100     Multiply both sides of the equation by 100 .

145.45     ≈   BA

 

The width of the river is approximately  145.45 ft.
