Central limit theorem to find the approximate distribution

I have a question, i don't understand how to use Central limit theorem to find the approximate distribution.
The question is:

A certain type of bathroom tile is sold in packs of 100 tiles. The distribution of the weights of individual tiles has mean 99 grams and standard deviation 5 grams.

(a) Use the central limit theorem to find the approximate distribution of the weight of a pack of 100 tiles.

any one can help me.

You have to answer three questions:

-What is the name of the distribution of the weights?
-What is the value of the first parameter of this distribution?
-What is the value of the second parameter of this distribution?

Can you answer these?
