    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Puzzling! As it stands, your question has way too many possible answers - there are many ways to make 100 with 9 numbers. If you have additional restrictions on what those numbers can be, and the allowed ways of combining them, those must be specified in the main body of the question. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Jan 16 at 16:41

    $\begingroup$ I think your "hints" need to be actual rules. $\endgroup$ – F1Krazy Jan 16 at 17:02

Well, I guess we are talking about the:

prime numbers. The sum of the first 9 equals 100 (2+3+5+7+11+13+17+19+23 = 100) and also the first 4 of them are also digits.
