# 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
