Actually, I think that is a good math problem.

The people who distill word problems into formulas without reading the problem would come up with 80 minutes.

Those who kept their brains engaged would say 40 minutes, because the length of time had nothing to do with the number of musicians.  The word problem has information irrelevant to the correct answer, which is something people need to be able to figure out in the real world.

I'd like to think this is actually part of a project management test.

"Sounds like a broken Wii" That's such a specific sound. When people leave a game disc in their Wiis for like 8 years and don't use the Wii in that time the upper spindle mount gets bent up and doesn't put enough pressure on the game disc so it starts slipping when you finally start using it again. And it does sound exactly like a wheezing Chihuahua.

There are 120 players to play the song, if you had half the amount of players, the length of time to play it would be zero because you wouldn't be able to play it.
