$x = \frac{7}{2}$

#### Explanation:

We have: $2 x + 3 = 4 \left(x - 1\right)$

Let's expand the parentheses:

$\implies 2 x + 3 = 4 x - 4$

Now, let's collect the like terms on separate sides of the equation:

$\implies 4 x - 2 x = 3 + 4$

$\implies 2 x = 7$

Finally, to solve for $x$, let's divide both sides by $2$:

$\implies x = \frac{7}{2}$

Therefore, the solution to the equation is $x = \frac{7}{2}$.
