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?

Would this be correct: 1200 cubic feet / 27 = 44.44 cubic yards?

MCC: I clicked your link after I posted. Thank You. If I have this correct: Cubic feet devided by 27 will give you cubic yards. If I am wrong, let me know.

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
