Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [299, 2197, 1573, 1417, 689] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [695, 1465, 1765, 1835, 2395, 2965, 3245]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 299 is 2705
