Answer:

During the weekend, it snowed #1 3/5# feet in an entire day,

Explanation:

You already know that it snowed #2/5# of a foot in a quarter of the day. You are trying to determine how much it snowed in an entire day, which is otherwise known as: how much it snowed in a whole day (#1/1#).
Since you know that the rate of the snowfall is #2/5# of a foot for every quarter (#1/4#) of the day, you can just simply multiply by 4 to get the rate for the whole day because there are four quarters (#1/4#) in a whole (#1#)

Hope this helps! :)
