# Does drag+paste count as a valid form of input in Excel?

I recently answered in Excel, where my input was based on the user copying a cell's contents via drag and past over multiple cells, where the input n was the final cell to which was dragged, which I thought was acceptable in the question: "You can get n any way." yet also "Standard loopholes are denied."

Am I incorrect in assuming that this form of input is valid?

Since the user input (an integer number) can be found on the left hand column, dragging to the equivalent n value for the number of rows is an acceptable form of input.
