Suppose the monopolist in Problem 12.6 incurs a marginal cost

Suppose the monopolist in Problem 12.6 incurs a marginal cost of 5.50 Euros for every unit it produces. The firm has no fixed costs.
In problem 12.6
Suppose a monopolist is able to engage in perfect first-degree price discrimination in a market. It can sell the first unit at a price of 10 Euros, the second at a price of 9 Euros, the third at a price of 8 Euros, the fourth at a price of 7 Euros, the fifth at a price of 6 Euros, and the sixth at a price of 5 Euros. It must sell whole units, not fractions of units.
a) How many units will it produce if it wants to maximize its profit? (Remember, it must produce whole units.)
b) What will its profit be when it maximizes profit?
c) What will the deadweight loss be when it maximizes profit? Explain.
