    That is correct

    12 IN/LB = 1 FT/LB
    24 IN/LB = 2 FT/LB
    etc = etc

    ft-lb = in-lb / 12
    in-lb = ft-lb x 12

    It's pretty easy to convert anything if you're willing to break it down to the units.

    Take 80 ft-lbs of torque.

    80 ft-lb x (12 in / 1 ft) = 960 in-lbs (the feet cancel out)


    Take 80 in-lbs of torque

    80 in-lb x (1 ft / 12 in) = 6.667 ft-lb (the inches cancel out)


    If you make sure that the units cancel out you'll always know whether you should multiply or divide.
