    What do these mean?

    придется
    денешься
    требуется
    обойдешься

    Also is there a difference between these?

    в конце-то концов
    в конце концов

    Thanks

    have to - приходится
    disappear - деваться
    need - требоваться
    manage - обходиться

    The difference between these "ends" is in it's emphatic meaning, the first being the higher degree.

    If it's still ununderstabdable, you can give a context for us.

    Он исчез, пропал, скрылся, улетучился, растворился в воздухе, куда-то делся, будто сквозь землю провалился, как в воду канул, просто испарился, его как ветром сдуло!!!

    I would ask the same for almost any English word. It's so confusing sometimes.

    пропадать also means "to spend time somewhere".
    eg: целыми днями он пропадал на пляже = целые дни он проводил на пляже

    деваться by itself doesn't mean disappear, it doesn't mean anything. You can say "Он пропал" (he disappeared), not "Он девался". It's a phrasal colloquialism "куда-то деваться" which means disappear. In fact, disappear is not a very accurate translation, if an object куда-то девался, this means that the object was misplaced. If it's a person, then the person cannot be found at the moment, but he is likely to show up later.
