Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [283, 2189, 1571, 2833, 433] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [631, 953, 1831, 2363, 2963, 3229, 3529]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 283 is 2833
