Curious as to how much will it hurt to get a tooth pulled out or a root canal?

In brief: Very little

with enough anesthesia, root canal and extraction should not hurt.
just a little if anything, which is always possible.

In brief: Scale of one to ten?

Extraction: 2-5 with anesthetic.
Root canal treatment: 0-5. If tooth not infected, i'd guess the low end of the range. If infected, all the pain is experienced while determining the level of anesthesia. Once numb, most feel nothing with rct, but pressure with extraction.
