>(1) {y==z, t==7, 1 <=x<=2, u>=-4}/. (a_<=w_<=b_)->(a+b)/2
Here, you asked Mathematica to replace 1 <=x<=2 with the average of the end points, i.e. 3/2. Instead of getting just the average of the end points, did you want a replacement rule, i.e., the result to be x->3/2? If so, it seems
In[4]:=
{y == z, t == 7, 1 <= x <= 2, u >= -4} /.
(a_) <= (w_) <= (b_) -> w -> (a + b)/2
Out[4]=
{y == z, t == 7, x -> 3/2, u >= -4}
does what you want
