Another solution:


u:= 1cm;

pair o, p[];
path halfcirc, area, triangle;
numeric diam,ang[];

diam:= 10u;

halfcirc:= halfcircle scaled diam;

o := (0, 0);
p0 := (diam/2, 0);
p0 := p0 rotated ang0;
p1 := p0 rotated ang1;

p0:=(o--(2*p0))intersectionpoint halfcirc;
p1:=(o--(2*p1))intersectionpoint halfcirc;
triangle:= p1--o--p0;

area:=(halfcirc cutbefore(p0) cutafter(p1))..p1..triangle..p0..cycle;

fill area withgreyscale .7;

draw halfcirc withcolor blue;
draw triangle withcolor green;
