At the rate of 30 compressions to two rescue breaths, how can you possibly give 100 compressions per minute?

100-compressions-per-minute is a measurement of the rate of compressions, not the actual number of compressions given in a minute.  When you pause to give rescue breaths, you will actually deliver fewer than 100 compressions.  It’s like measuring kilometres-per-hour when you drive.  You may drive at a rate of 40 kilometres -per-hour, but if you have to stop at one or two lights during the course of your 40-km drive, you will travel less than 40 km in one hour.
