The "n or more times" repetition quantifier allows us to repeat a pattern unit at least n or more times. The "n or more times" repetition quantifier '{n,}' and it needs be placed immediately after the pattern unit. For example:

\d{10,} # matches '6973738433' from 'World population: 6973738433'

The regular expression to capture the value of PI with a precision of at least 5 decimal digits::

```
3\.\d{5,}
3\. - matches '3.'
\d{5,} - repeats \d at least 5 times
```
