A rule of thumb states that the ideal weight (in ounces) of a baseball bat for a high school baseball player is 5 ounces more than one third of the player’s height (in inches).

For a, h/3 + 5
For b, you have to find last years height first.
66/3 + 5 = 27 oz
Then find this years height
69/3 + 5 = 28 oz
The answer is 1 more oz.
