kilometers in a 45º angle (northeast) of the entered position.
The spreadsheet is fairly tolerant about the format of the
entered coordinates; they can be in degrees, in degrees and minutes or
in degrees, minutes and seconds, the special characters (degree sign
etc.) does not need to be present. The output coordinate format can be

latitude is lower than π/2 and the longitude is lower than π,
the position is assumed to be in radians rather than degrees.
