What is the minimum visibility required for VFR conditions?

Visibility: For visual flight below 10, 000ft AMSL, visibility must be at least 3sm (5km). When visibility is less than the required minimum, aircraft may not take off under visual flight rules (VFR). The pilot must either take off under IFR, delay until the required visibility exists, or not take off at all.
