I think you ought to ask this question in the maths forum and not in excel forum.

In any case, the coordinates you have provided are connected to a local system and you have to provide the parameters of that local system to be able to convert to the longitude/latitude.

Without a grid reference point and and scale there is not a way to correlate this to latitude/longitude.  Below is an article explaining how this could be done manually.
