Move the negative in front of the fraction.

Add full rotations of <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>2</mn><mi>π</mi></mstyle></math> until the angle is between <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>0</mn></mstyle></math> and <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>2</mn><mi>π</mi></mstyle></math> .

Apply the reference angle by finding the angle with equivalent trig values in the first quadrant. Make the expression negative because cosine is negative in the third quadrant.

The exact value of <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mi>cos</mi><mrow><mo>(</mo><mfrac><mrow><mi>π</mi></mrow><mrow><mn>4</mn></mrow></mfrac><mo>)</mo></mrow></mstyle></math> is <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mfrac><mrow><msqrt><mn>2</mn></msqrt></mrow><mrow><mn>2</mn></mrow></mfrac></mstyle></math> .

The result can be shown in multiple forms.
