Answer

$-\cos \left(\dfrac {4\pi }{5}\right) =\cos \left( \dfrac {\pi }{5}\right) $

Work Step by Step

$\sin ^{2}\alpha -\cos ^{2}\alpha =-\cos ^{2}\alpha \Rightarrow \sin ^{2}\dfrac {2\pi }{5}-\cos ^{2}\dfrac {2\pi }{5}=-\cos \dfrac {4\pi }{5}=\cos \left( \pi -\dfrac {4\pi }{5}\right) =\cos \left( \dfrac {\pi }{5}\right) $
