### Explanation

We note the use of the fourth dot as a prefix for currency signs, followed by one cell per sign. For example, the dollar sign consists of the dots 256-4 and the cent sign consists of the dots 14-4.

Follow the normal line when using currency signs. It is worth noting that it is common to write the dollar sign just before the number, while the cent sign usually comes after the number.
