Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [79, 2087, 3091, 3593, 961] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [223, 1987, 2159, 3041, 3127, 3611, 3853]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 79 is 3649
