Prime

The prime form of this scale is Scale 143

Scale 143Scale 143, Ian Ring Music Theory

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [3601, 481, 143, 2119, 3107] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [239, 1927, 2167, 3011, 3131, 3553, 3613]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 3601 is 271
