If I have this correct:
9 cubic feet = 1 cubic yard so...
1200 cubic feet devided by 9 = 133.33 cubic yards.
Is this correct or am I wrong?
Thank you in advance for your help....Rick

If a yard = 3 feet.
 
Then square yard = 9 square feet (3x3)
 
Then cubic yard = 27 cubic feet (3x3x3)

Do it thusly:
 
1.  Convert cubic feet to (a box of) linear feet.
2.  Convert linear feet to linear yards
3.  Convert (a box of) linear yards to cubic yards
 
27 cubic feet = 3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft
3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft = 1 yd x 1 yd x 1 yd
1 yd x 1 yd x 1 yd = 1 cubic yard
 
So, 27 cubic feet = 1 cubic yard
