I'm quite new to LaTeX and I need some help moving this triangle that I've drawn with asymptote to the right, if it's possible. Below is my code:

\documentclass[letterpaper, 12pt]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[inline]{asymptote}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{fullpage}
\usepackage{wrapfig}

\begin{document}

\section{Center}

A triangle has many centers, and in this lesson, we will mainly focus on three of them: \underline{centroid}, \underline{incenter}, and \underline{circumcenter}.

\textbf{Centroid}

\bigskip

\begin{minipage}{0.6\textwidth} 

\begin{flushleft}
A centroid is the intersection of the three medians \linebreak of a triangle, which is usually denoted by $G$.
\end{flushleft}

\begin{asy}
pair A, B, C, D, E, F;
A = (80,80);
B = (0,0);
C = (120,0);
D = (60,0);
E = (100,40);
F = (40,40);
draw((0,0)--(80,80)--(120,0)--cycle);
draw((0,0)--(100,40));
draw((80,80)--(60,0));
draw((120,0)--(40,40));
label("$A$", A, N);
label("$C$", C, SE);
label("$B$", B, SW);
label("$D$", D, S);
label("$E$", E, NE);
label("$F$", F, NW);
\end{asy}


\end{minipage}

\end{document}

That gives me this:enter image description here

I want to move the triangle to the highlighted place, if that's possible...

Sorry that I'm very new and don't know quite a lot of stuff. Please be patient with me if I have some questions and thank you for all your help in advance!!!

PS I've also seen some people say to use "float"? But I don't really know how to use it...

    Welcome to tex.sx. It would be helpful if you'd extend your example code to begin with \documentclass and make it compilable, so potential helpers don't have to do any guessing. Jul 12 '20 at 23:23
  • @barbarabeeton sorry I edited the post to add that. Thanks for pointing it out! Jul 13 '20 at 0:58
  • @DandelionDreams Barbara asked to tell you: your question is related to this one: tex.stackexchange.com/q/378548, so you might find some useful advice about minipages there as well Jul 13 '20 at 11:08

Here is one way.

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[inline]{asymptote}
\begin{document}
\section{Center}
A triangle has many centers, and in this lesson, we will mainly focus on three of them: \underline{centroid}, \underline{incenter}, and \underline{circumcenter}.

\noindent
\begin{minipage}{0.49\textwidth} 
\begin{flushleft}
\textbf{Centroid}

A centroid is the intersection of the three medians \linebreak of a triangle, which is usually denoted by $G$.
\end{flushleft}
\end{minipage}% no blank line after
\begin{minipage}{0.49\textwidth} 
\begin{flushright}
\begin{asy}
    pair A, B, C, D, E, F;
    A = (80,80);
    B = (0,0);
    C = (120,0);
    D = (60,0);
    E = (100,40);
    F = (40,40);
    draw((0,0)--(80,80)--(120,0)--cycle);
    draw((0,0)--(100,40));
    draw((80,80)--(60,0));
    draw((120,0)--(40,40));
    label("$A$", A, N);
    label("$C$", C, SE);
    label("$B$", B, SW);
    label("$D$", D, S);
    label("$E$", E, NE);
    label("$F$", F, NW);
    \end{asy}
\end{flushright}    
\end{minipage}
\end{document}

Note: This is compiled with F1 in TexMaker
