If the vector from origin to the vertices of the triangle ABC are arespectively then the vector representation of the sides AB and BC will respectively be (a-b) and (c-b) .
The perpendicular distance from A to BC will be ABsin(theta) , where theta is the angle between AB and BC.
this will be equal to AB cross BC / BC        {AB cross BC = AB*BC*sin(theta)}
i.e I (a-b) cross (c-b) I / (b-c)
