I'll just throw this out.
A minor pentatonic (A-C-D-E-G-A) is the relative minor of the C Scale.
The relative minor of any major scale is the 6th of the scale.  C-D-E-F-G-[A]-B-C
The 6th of the E scale is C#, the relative minor of the E Scale is C#
The E Scale is E-F#-Ab-A-B-[C#]-D#-E
The C# minor pentatonic is C#-E-F#-A-B
The minor pentatonic scale step pattern is  (Root) (step and a half) (full step) (full step) (step and a half) ( full step)
