# Where's the First Powers?

Algebra Level 5

Given that the complex numbers $x,y,z$ satisfy the equations

\begin{aligned} x^2 + y^2 + z^2 & = & 2 \\ x^3 + y^3 + z^3 & = & 3 \\ x^4 + y^4 + z^4 & = & 4 \\ \end{aligned}

Denote $f$ as a minimum degree monic polynomial with real coefficients such that it has root $x+y+z$.

What is the value of $f(1)$?
