When one or more objects are selected you will have the Transformation property available in the
properties shutter, right click to popup the transformation dialog box
Here you can enter the transformation data as numeric values.
Translate: The objects position
Rotate: The objects rotation around the origin
Scale: The scaling of the object around the origin
Origin: The point that the object scales and rotate around
By default the origin is in the center of the object, this means that it will roatet around itself, this what you probably want, but some time it's easier to have it rotating around some other point, this happens when you move the origin. The best way to find out about how it works is to test and see what happens.
Yoo can also transform a selection with the object locator, right click on the locator to change the mode between translate, rotate, scale, move origin and so on.
