#### Solution

There are 44 identical cards with figure of circle or square in the bag.
∴ Total number of outcomes = 44

Number of cards with green circle = 24 − 9 = 15
Number of cards with green square = 20 − 11 = 9
∴ Number of cards with green colour figure = 15 + 9 = 24
So, the favourable number of outcomes is 24.
∴ P(card drawn has the figure of green colour) =$\frac{\text{ Favourable number of outcomes }}{\text{ Total number of outcomes }} = \frac{24}{44} = \frac{6}{11}$
