Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [339, 2217, 789, 1221, 1329] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [855, 1395, 1485, 1845, 2475, 2745, 3285]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 339 is 2385
