Sort:

13+8+8+24+47 = 100

Mathematically, if we're just going to add the numbers to come up with a sum of 100 then it would be:
13 + 39 + 48 = 100

Physically, it is very difficult as 13 is not adjacent to 39 and 48. Moreover, it is physically almost impossible not to hit number 8 which is within the path of the ball. Also, it is between numbers 13 and 39.

My conclusion?
It is POSSIBLE mathematically and while physically ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE.
I say almost physically impossible since, who knows, there might be other factors that might make it possible, even though how impossible it seems. 😁
