You forgot the tfoot itself :)

<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>HTML Tables</title>



<table>
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th scope="col">Name</th>
      <th scope="col">Job</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tfoot>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td>Nick</td>
      <td>Designer</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Andrew</td>
      <td>Developer</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Dave</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody> 
////////////////insert your <tfoot>
  <tr></tr>
  <td></td>
///////////////close your </tfoot>
</table>

You just need to close your tfoot tag. :) Looks good otherwise!

Hey Charles!

First things first, the tfoot opening tag is in an odd place... my feet are at the bottom of my body. And secondly, you have a "dangling" tag... there isn't a closing element.

</thead>
<tfoot> //huh?
<tbody>

Basic syntax would look like this...

<table>
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <td></td>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td></td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
  <tfoot>
    <tr>
      <td></td>
    </tr>
  </tfoot>
</table>

Keep up the good work!!
