So, on the Wye side of the transformer you need to take the voltage (assume to be phase voltage if not otherwise noted) and divide by square root of 3 (or ~1.73). So the equation is
(7200V/(sqrt(3))/480V = 4156.9V/480V = 8.66 so the TTR = 8.66:1

Turns ratio is only taken on single phases of a transformer, so all values need to be reduced to individual line values to represent each single phase. This is also why you see a 12kV/480 delta/wye transformer with voltage values of 12kV - 480Y/277V.
If for whatever reason you needed to convert current values from phase to line on a Delta Xfmr, then you take phase current and divide by sqrt(3).
thank you. this is very helpful.
