I need to scale some faces but I want to scale by an exact number I can type in. I can see the values in the top left as I scale the object but I can't click or edit the values as I am scaling the faces. I can't find any other tool settings or properties that would allow my to set the value manually.

You can use the operator panel to do that:

Once you have validated the scale, you can set the values manually.

Keypresses.

Following method outlined here

Scaling in 2 axis at once

enter image description here

To scale selection globally in XY by 1.25

S Shift+ Z 1.25

or locally.

S Shift+ ZZ 1.25

Image above shows local scaling. The global XY axes appear on first ShiftZ, local when hit again.

When using the panel can select and change multiple axes at once.
