Use element-wise operations everywhere and it works —
t=linspace(0,15);
x=(3*t.^2-5).*(t.^3).*sind(t./2)-8*t+27;
v=6*t-2.5*(t.^3).*cosd(t./2)-15.*t.^2.*sind(t./2)-8;
a=1.25*t.^3.*sind(t./2)-15.*t.^2.*cosd(t./2)-30.*t.*sind(t/2)+6;
figure
plot(t,x,'-',t,v,'--',t,a,'-.','linewidth',1)
title('StreamLine')
xlabel('Time')
ylabel('Velocity')
legend('x','v','a', 'Location','bestoutside')
grid on
The legend call also needs to include the plotted variables, and the names appropriate to the values.

In addition to dots in front of carets ( .^ ) and slashes ( ./ ), you need dots in front of the asterisks ( .* ) for elementwise multiplication.
Otherwise, Matlab attempts matrix multiplication.

You need to use array operations, not matrix operations (you missed this for multiplication):
t=linspace(0,15);
x=(3*t.^2-5).*(t.^3).*sind(t./2)-8.*t+27;
% ^ ^ ^
v=6*t-2.5*(t.^3).*cosd(t./2)-15*t.^2.*sind(t./2)-8;
% ^ ^
a=1.25*t.^3.*sind(t./2)-15.*t.^2.*cosd(t./2)-30.*t.*sind(t/2)+6;
% ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
plot(t,x,'-',t,v,'--',t,a,'-.','linewidth',1)
title('StreamLine')
xlabel('Time')
ylabel('Velocity')
legend('Location','bestoutside') % I fixed this for you too
grid on
