```Just a quick and dirty way to test if there is a possibility of a solution
(maybe not integer) might be something like this.   The solution is in the
range of 0-47, so we can quickly see that with 148, there are no solutions.
However, 14 is in the range, so there is a "chance" there might be integer
solutions.

In:=
3*x + 2*y - z /.
{x -> Interval[{3, 8}],
y -> Interval[{0, 12}],
z -> Interval[{1, 9}]}

Out=
Interval[{0, 47}]

In:=
FindInstance[

{3*x + 2*y - z == 14,
3 <= x <= 8,
0 <= y <= 12,
1 <= z <= 9},
{x, y, z}, Integers, 100]

```
