Unfortunately, that example has no solution:

Reduce[{3*x + 2*y - z == 148,
3 <= x <= 8, 0 <= y <= 12,
1 <= z <= 9}, {x, y, z}]
False

FindInstance[
{3*x + 2*y - z == 148,
3 <= x <= 8, 0 <= y <= 12,
1 <= z <= 9}, {x, y, z}]
{}

But this one does:

FindInstance[{3*x + 2*y - z == 148,
3 <= x <= 80, 0 <= y <= 12, 1 <= z <= 9}, {x, y, z}]
{{x -> 133/3, y -> 12, z -> 9}}
