Is there a way to show text before AND after text entry fields in a Matrix Table (Constant Sum type)

I am collecting monetary data and trying to display a dollar sign before the field, and ".00" after the field.

Is there a way to do this entirely with javascript, or with the built-in Add Symbol feature for one side, and Javascript for the other side?

    This will add it before:

    document.querySelectorAll("tr input").forEach(item =>{
        item.insertAdjacentText("beforebegin","$ ")})

    Thank you @ahmedA ! And if I wanted to make the field 100px wide, what would I add? I've been using the code below previously, and it appears to work OK with your new code, but I'm a Javascript novice and don't know if that's unstable or there's a more efficient way to do this.
