There are 3 different sets of numbers involved here.
A set of six, a set of two and the set of all eight.
Each set has its own mean.

Note that if you know the mean and how many numbers there are, you can find the total.
$T=M×N$
So, for all eight numbers: The total is $8×41=328$
For two of the numbers: The total is $2×29=58$
Therefore the total of the other six numbers is 328-58=270
The mean of the six numbers $=\frac{270}{6}=45$
