<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>HTML Tables Challenge</title> </head> <body> <h1>HTML Tables Challenge</h1> <!-- Write your code below --> <table border = "1"> <thead> <tr> <th>Month</th> <th>Savings</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <th>January</th> <th>$100</th> </tr> <tr> <th>February</th> <th>$50</th> </tr> <tr> <th>March</th> <th>$30</th> </tr> <tr> <td>Addcells1</td> <td>Addcells2</td> </tr> </tbody> <tr> <th>April</th> <th>$25</th> </tr> </table> </body> </html>

I'm guessing you're concerned that the text is not bold? <th> by default is bold because it is supposed to be the head of a column or row - meaning the label of the data that will be provided in the corresponding cells. <td> elements would be those corresponding cells.
So "Month" and "Savings" would be your heads, and the rest would be your actual data.
