No, it does not make sense.

Work Step by Step

Simplify the provided expression to obtain, \[\frac{{{a}^{n}}}{{{b}^{0}}}=\frac{{{a}^{n}}}{1}\] Because \[{{b}^{0}}=1\] and not zero. \[\frac{{{a}^{n}}}{1}={{a}^{n}}\] As\[\frac{{{a}^{n}}}{{{b}^{0}}}\] is not undefined because\[{{b}^{0}}=1\] and not zero, hence it does not make sense.
