This is about as straightforward as it gets. If you do
SELECT * FROM pg_class WHERE relname = 'tenk1';
you will find out that tenk1 has 233 disk pages and 10000 rows.
So the cost is estimated at 233 page reads, defined as costing
1.0 apiece, plus 10000 * cpu_tuple_cost which is currently 0.01
(try SHOW cpu_tuple_cost).
Doesn't that work out to
(233 * 1.0) + (10000 * 0.01) = 233.0 + 100.0 = 333.0
or am I missing something?
