    Must = have to = have got to
    'Have to' and 'have got to' are just casual versions of 'must'.

    When people talk quickly, 'got to' sometimes becomes 'got tA' accidentally. This is never written, except when quoting someone who said it (where it is spelled 'gotta').

    I must eat something.
    I have to eat something (casual) = I've got to eat something (casual) = I got to eat something (slang, because the 'have' is missing)
