When a certain tree was first planted, it was 4 feet tall, and the height of the tree increased by a constant amount each year for the next 6 years. At the end of the 6th year, the tree was 1/5 taller than it was at the end of the 4th year. By how many feet did the height of the tree increase every year?

Ans: 2/3 - any explanations? No typos above. This is from GMATPrep.

Height at 0th year = 4. Increase each year = x.

So 4 + 6x = 1.2 (4 + 4x)
=> x = 2/3.
