no sweat

Here is my best explanation:

'easily done' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'we will block number given places at table?' is the wordplay.
'will block' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'number' becomes 'no' (abbreviation for 'number').
'given places at table?' becomes 'sat' (eg seated a party at a table in a restaurant).
'no'+'sat'='nosat'
'we' inserted into 'nosat' is 'NO SWEAT'.

'it's' acts as a link.
