The Prhymes’ triple live album “Deified” has hidden numerical “tricks” in the cover notes. Track 1, with the shortest duration, is a one-and-a-half minute introduction of the band, shown as “1. Zak, Bob, Kaz 1:30” in the cover notes. The other nineteen tracks each have different durations under ten minutes and are listed similarly with durations in “m:ss” format.
For each of tracks 2 to 20, thinking of its “m:ss” duration as a three-figure whole number (ignoring the colon), the track number and duration value each have the same number of factors. Curiously, the most possible are palindromic; and the most possible are even.
What is the total album duration (given as m:ss)?
