The formula for this equation is 55 - 3 / 2

So 55 - 3 is 52, 52 / 2 = 26.

What to check the answer? Here is the checking:
2 x 26 = 52 + 3 = 55
So therefore, 26 is the answer.

erratum: the like terms are , not is, 3 and 55...

To solve for x following the equation:
 2x + 3 = 55

Combine like terms.  The like terms in this equation is 3 and 55 but are not in the same side of equation.

Transpose 3 to the other side of equation:

2x + 3-3 = 55-3
2x = 52

Divide both side of equation by 2
2x/2 = 52/2
x = 26

To check if the value 6 for x is correct, go back to the original equation
2x + 3 = 55

2(26) + 3 = 55
52 + 3 = 55
55 = 55
