How many degrees of latitude and longitude separate a location at the intersection of the international date line and the antarctic circle from another location at the intersection of the prime meridian and the tropic of cancer?

The Antarctic Circle is at 66 33 39 South. The Tropic of Cancer is at 23 26 22 North. By adding those numbers together we get the number of latitude degrees that separate them (89 degrees, 59 minutes, 61 seconds = 90 degrees, 1 second).

The Prime Meridian is at 0 degrees longitude; the International Dateline at the Arctic Circle is 180 degrees longitude.
