When augmented sixth chords are constructed on a note other than the sixth scale degree in minor or lowered sixth in major, they typically resolve to a secondary dominant that is constructed a m2 below the augmented sixth chord. This is considered a type one resolution, since the A6 chord is resolving to its dominant. (The A6 chord appears in such instances on the lowered sixth of the tonicized chord.)

Resolution to a tonicized chord in second inversion is a
type two resolution as well, since it is resolving to its tonic.

Following the common practice era, the use of augmented sixths began appearing in popular songs and hymns. In these contexts, as will be seen in the assignments associated with this section, their appearance is more prominent in major keys.
