more teeth on the chain ring = heavier gearing (higher top speed)
less teeth on the chain ring = lighter gearing (better for pedal kicks and quick acceleration)

more teeth on the rear sprocket = lighter gearing
less teeth on the rear sprocket = heavier gearing

that easy

what gearing your run depends on your riding style and your personal preference :)
