Sounds like 16 monthly payments to me. 16 * 190 = 3040

I assume that the $3000 is the remaining principle, so I'd need to know what interest rate you're paying and whether it's compounded (monthly or continuously). 
I'm not sure if this is homework problem you're helping your granddaughter with or it's a real question about payments.  If it's a real question (vice a homework one), you can just click on the web site address below, enter your loan info, and it will compute the number of payments you have left.
Enter $3000 for the loan amount, 0 for down payment, your interest rate, and $190 for monthly payment, then click on "Compute".
