How to plot a given signal e.g.

   x(n)=cos(pie*n/2)-sin(pie*n/8)+3cos(n*pie/4+pie/3) 

in such a way that plotting proves its periodicity??

Student, this is simple plotting in MATLAB. Take a look at the documentation:

If this is an assignment problem and you have more of these to solve, it would help to invest some time on the getting started section of MATLAB:

No, you cannot prove something has infinitely extending properties just by examining any finite subset of it. Try, for example, plotting in the area of n = 10^100
