If you got the coordinates of some location and switched out the hemispheres where would it be?

For instance I live in Seattle, WA (47°36′35″N 122°19′59″W)https://www.google.com/maps/place/47...4d-122.3330556

if I were to switch out the N with an S it would be here
https://www.google.com/maps/place/47...4d-122.3330556

and if I were to switch out the W with an E it would be here
https://www.google.com/maps/place/47...!4d122.3330556

and if I did it to both I would get
https://www.google.com/maps/place/47...!4d122.3330556

Another one I find Interesting is Norilisk, Russia (northernmost city with >100,000) 69°20′N 88°13′E
https://www.google.com/maps/place/69...3!4d88.2166667

Switched N with S
https://www.google.com/maps/place/69...3!4d88.2166667

Switched E with W
https://www.google.com/maps/place/69...!4d-88.2166667

Switched both

I actually made a mistake, I forgot that when switching between E and W you also have to subtract the coordinate from 180°

So for Seattle it would be

47°36′35″N 58°41′1″E
https://www.google.com/maps/place/47...2!4d58.6836111

47°36′35″S 58°41′1″E
https://www.google.com/maps/place/47...2!4d58.6836111

and for Norilsk

69°20′N 92°47′W
https://www.google.com/maps/place/69...!4d-92.7833333

69°20′S 92°47′W
https://www.google.com/maps/place/69...!4d-92.7833333

I don't know if you read my second post, but you have to do some math when switching from E to W
just so you know coordinates are read (degree°minute′second″)

So these are what you would get when switching from E to W

and both
