Three builders are laying a brick wall.
Fred can lay 1000 bricks in three hours, Jimmy can lay 1000 bricks in two hours and Kev can lay 1000 bricks in six hours.

Hint: How many bricks are laid in six hours?
Answer: 1 hour.
How many bricks are laid in six hours?
In six hours Kev lays 1000 bricks, Fred lays 2000 bricks, and Jimmy lays 3000 bricks.
So in six hours we have a total of 6000 bricks laid.
Which means that it will take one hour to lay 1000 bricks. QED.
