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.

$mean=\frac{Total}{number\text{}of\text{}numbers}PRM=\frac{T}{N}$

Note that if you know the mean and how many numbers there are, you can find the total.

$T=M\times N$

You can add numbers, you can add totals, but you may not add means together.

So, for all eight numbers: The total is $8\times 41=328$

For two of the numbers: The total is $2\times 29=58$

Therefore the total of the other six numbers is 328-58=270

The mean of the six numbers $=\frac{270}{6}=45$
