    plural noun as an adjective?

    Hi guys,

    should I write "the error contributions are taken into account through preliminary measurements"

    or

    "the errors contributions are taken into account through preliminary measurements

    or

    "the errors' contributions are taken into account through preliminary measurements

    There are many errors and each contributes! :)

    Thanks in advance

    Patrizio

    The error contributions are taken into account through preliminary measurements.

    or
