In this work, we study linear codes over the ring F-2 x (F-2 + vF(2)) and their weight enumerators, where v(2) = v. We first give the structure of the ring and investigate linear codes over this ring. We also define two weights called Lee weight and Gray weight for these codes. Then we introduce two Gray maps from F-2 x (F-2 + vF(2)) to F-2(3) and study the Gray images of linear codes over the ring. Moreover, we prove MacWilliams identities for the complete, the symmetrized and the Lee weight enumerators.
