Hi,

You are nearly there. You use a solve block. Solve blocks are available in MathCad 11/14/15 and Prime.

Enclosed is solution in Mathcad and PDF of Mathcad.

Another approach is to use the Swamee-Jain equation. No iteration required. It's accurate to around 1% of Colebrook, which is plenty close for most flow work.
