Balanced delimiters problem in Ruby

I need to crete a Ruby script to solve the following problem, but am new to the language and don't know how to tackle it. Any help is appreciated.

There is a string of text that contains paired characters such as [] {} () <>. The string is well formatted if all the opening characters have their correspondent closing character and if they are nested correctly. Write a function that takes a string and returns true if it is well formatted and false otherwise.

{well [formatted]} {bad> [formatted)})
