I did solve that problem my way with C#.

Here is the code:

using System;
using System.Text.RegularExpressions;

public class Program
    public static void Main()
        string s = "RLRRLLRLRL";
        Console.WriteLine($"Output: {BalancedString(s)}");

    // Assuming there can be only 'L' and 'R' in the string
    static int BalancedString(string s) {

        int count = 0;

        for(int i=0; i< s.Length - 1;i++){
            if (!s[i].Equals(s[i+1])) {
                i++; // Next index is part of the set hence he hop it.

        return count;

    static void CheckBalancedString(string s){
        Regex r = new Regex("^[LR]*$");
        if (!r.IsMatch(s)) throw new Exception("Sentence can only be made of 'L' and 'R' characters.");
        else Console.WriteLine($"{s} matches the expression.");

I put a link to that .NET Fiddle to play around.
