# Check if All A's Appears Before All B's

Given a string `s` consisting of only the characters `'a'` and `'b'`, return `true` if every `'a'` appears before every `'b'` in the string. Otherwise, return `false`.

Example 1:

Input: s = "aaabbb"
Output: true
Explanation:
The 'a's are at indices 0, 1, and 2, while the 'b's are at indices 3, 4, and 5.
Hence, every 'a' appears before every 'b' and we return true.

Example 2:

Input: s = "abab"
Output: false
Explanation:
There is an 'a' at index 2 and a 'b' at index 1.
Hence, not every 'a' appears before every 'b' and we return false.

Example 3:

Input: s = "bbb"
Output: true
Explanation:
There are no 'a's, hence, every 'a' appears before every 'b' and we return true.

Constraints:

• `1 <= s.length <= 100`
• `s[i]` is either `'a'` or `'b'`.

SOLUTION:

``````class Solution:
def checkString(self, s: str) -> bool:
bseen = False
for c in s:
if c == 'b':
bseen = True
if c == 'a':
if bseen:
return False
return True
``````
