question on sails

I learned to sail on a sunfish (dramaticall simple boat)

In July 2002, I finally reached my dream - bought an O''Day 23'' ...Has MUCH more than the sunfish.

Both sails are in GREAT condiction, main looks good. My question is: is there a difference between a jib and a genoa? and how do I determine if it''s a 110% or a 135% or a 150% ???

A simple answer (if there is one, would be GREATLY appreciated!)

hoping the experienced sailors don''t make me walk the plank for asking that kinda question *LOL*

Best Regards,
Mark
