Problem

Circles with centers A and B have radii 3 and 8, respectively. A common internal tangent intersects the circles at C and D, respectively. Lines AB and CD intersect at E, and AE=5. What is CD?

$\mathrm{(A) \ } 13\qquad\mathrm{(B) \ } \frac{44}{3}\qquad\mathrm{(C) \ } \sqrt{221}\qquad\mathrm{(D) \ } \sqrt{255}\qquad\mathrm{(E) \ } \frac{55}{3}\qquad$
