How can my API formatting be improved?

Tell us what’s happening:
A part of my code is greyed out. I would fix the syntax error myself, but I believe it is a bug in the program. Any help with formatting would be appreciated.

I’m really trying to complete these exercises rather than skipping through it.

Your code so far

const apiKey = 'I. AIzaSyB2sfWuybVQXFLw3x7YEq1HsIse6YR55Gw';
const url = https://www.googleapis.com/urlshortener/v1/url
 ///starting with the double forward slash all the others are greyed out 
///(or is it greyed out?) Will this correct itself when I move to other steps?

// Some page elements

const $inputField = $('#input');
const $expandButton = $('#expand');
const $shortenButton = $('#shorten');
const $responseField = $('#responseField');

// AJAX functions

function expandUrl() {
const = url + '?shortUrl=' + $inputField.val() + '&key=' + apiKey;
};


function shortenUrl() {

};

function expand() {
  $responseField.empty();
  expandUrl();
  return false;
};

function shorten() {
  $responseField.empty();
  shortenUrl();
  return false;
};

$expandButton.click(expand);
$shortenButton.click(shorten);

// Only change code below this line.

};
