A list of 2018 positive integers has a unique mode, which occurs exactly 10 times. What is the least number of distinct values that can occur in the list?

the mode occurs 10 times. So remaining digits = 2018-10 = 2008.
For least number of distinct digits, other digits should repeat maximum times but less than 10.
So, 2008/9 = 223 and 1 remainder
=> 223 digits can each repeat 9 times and we will have 1 more distinct digit
=224 total remaining digits
Thus, total unique digits in the list = 224 + 1 (the mode that repeats 10 times) = 225
