Conversion of Feet Coordinates to Decimal Degrees

I'm trying to programmatically convert (in C#) feet coordinates to decimal degrees.  I'm not so worried about the actual programming (although it would be nice if someone has already created code for this) as I am the math behind the conversion.  I've included my coordinate system details below in case they're needed.  How can I accomplish this?

 

Example:

1,985,012.726  449,396.204 Feet  --> -97.548833  32.901945 Decimal Degrees

 

Coordinate System:

NAD_1927_StatePlane_Texas_North_Central_FIPS_4202

WKID: 32038 Authority: EPSG

 

Projection: Lambert_Conformal_Conic

False_Easting: 2000000.0

False_Northing: 0.0

Central_Meridian: -97.5

Standard_Parallel_1: 32.13333333333333

Standard_Parallel_2: 33.96666666666667

Latitude_Of_Origin: 31.66666666666667

Linear Unit: Foot_US (0.3048006096012192)

 

Geographic Coordinate System: GCS_North_American_1927

Angular Unit: Degree (0.0174532925199433)

Prime Meridian: Greenwich (0.0)
