The self consistent approximation of Rowlinson, Carley and Lado has been applied to calculate the radial distribution functions of simple fluids (Neon, Krypton and Xenon) interacting with a Lennard-Jones 6:12 potential. It has been found that in general the self consistent values are nearer to the exact values than other values.
