Completely new to ArcGIS - GeoCoding question

I'm looking at ArcGIS as a possible geocoding solution and have been reviewing the code samples and checked out the sample app,  as well as probing the REST API.
The one thing I can't see is how to get lat/long coordinates.... I see the x/y returned by the API, but those are obviously not lat/long...
Is there a simple way for this to return lat/long?
I know the question really sounds stupid... at least it does to me... and am almost embarrassed to ask, but I really am not finding this anywhere... including the service reference doc...
