This might be useful if you are learning scales and want to play different  pentatonic scales during simple chord progressions, (e.g. I – IV – V – IV  stuff). 

Diagram shows major or minor scale built from 3 pentatonic scales: 

1: shape with colored  background is your "root"/ key pentatonic scale
2:  thick line through notes indicates 4th note pentatonic 
3: thick line around notes indicates 5th note pentatonic 

So, in case of C major you have C,F and G pentatonic for example. You can see scale indicators at the left bottom of the diagrams
Hopefully someone will find it useful,
