It depends whether you are coming or going as it could also be 270 degrees

Thw question was asking for degrees between and not degrees of the compass Kiwi in Oz. Northeast is at 45 degrees and Southeast is at 135 degrees. 135 - 45 = 90 if you go clockwise and 45 + 360 - 135 = 270 if you go the other way.
