How are these two types of mutations likely to affect the protein coded for by a mutant gene?

Assume that protein synthesis always reads along a chromosome three bases at a time to code for each successive amino acid in a protein. There are two kinds of point mutations, a base substitution, and a base deletion. How are these two types of mutations likely to affect the protein coded for by a mutant gene?
