# What is the difference between using "de" and "que" for the English word "to"?

Here are two examples where de and que are meant to translate to to in English: Donde tengo que dejar los documentos? = Where do I have to leave the documents? Es imposible de saber = It is impossible to know. Both que and de mean to in these sentences. My question is what is the difference such that one must be used over the other?
