# Exercise: Check Whether the Brackets are Balanced

Let's check if the brackets in a string are balanced.

## We'll cover the following

## Problem statement

Given a string containing only square brackets, `[]`

, you must check whether the brackets are balanced or not. The brackets are said to be **balanced** if there is a **closing bracket** for every **opening bracket**.

Therefore, your task is to write the `check_balance()`

function, which returns `True`

if the brackets are **balanced** and `False`

if they are **not**.

For the sake of simplicity, you can assume that the string will not contain any other characters.

## Input

```
"[[[[][]]]]"
```

## Output

```
True
```
